Lenore Tawney: Mirror of the Universe publication honoured with 2019 George Wittenborn Memorial Book Award

The exhibition catalogue ​'Lenore Tawney: Mirror of the Universe'​ has been recognized by the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) for excellence in art publishing. Established in 1980, the Wittenborn Award honours the memory of George Wittenborn, a premier New York art book dealer and publisher who was a prominent supporter of the Society in its formative years.

 

'Lenore Tawney: Mirror of the Universe'​ is the largest survey dedicated to the artist, examining her work and influence over the course of her 100-year life. This extensive catalogue accompanies an ambitious program of four exhibitions mounted at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Published in association with The University of Chicago Press, the publication was the product of a distinguished group of contributors: Glenn Adamson, Kathleen Nugent Mangan, Karen Patterson, Mary Savig, Shannon R. Stratton, and Dr. Florica Zaharia.
