Vilcek Award

Vilcek Award

​This Vilcek Prize award trophy was created for a major new award program honoring outstanding achievements of foreign-born Americans within the fields of the visual arts and biomedical research. The first winners are artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude as well as cancer researcher Joan Massague. The trophy represents a visualization of the pinnacle an individual or group can reach, each trophy is individually designed and cast for the winner.

After 10 years, they are still using this design using 3D printing which allows the award to take on a different DNA each time.
