KU 2006 fine arts graduate wins International Sculpture Center award

LAWRENCE — Andrew C. Hadle, a recent graduate of the University of Kansas, has won a prestigious Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2006 in an international competition sponsored by the International Sculpture Center of Hamilton, N.J.

Hadle is one of 22 award recipients whose work will be exhibited Oct. 7 through Jan. 7 in the Grounds for Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition in Hamilton, N.J. His work will be included in Grounds For Sculpture’s 2006 Fall/Winter Exhibitions Catalogue and featured in the October issue of the International Sculpture Center’s award-winning magazine Sculpture and on the center’s award-winning Web site,

Hadle is the son of Gary Hadle and of Rose Whitney, both of Manhattan. He graduated from KU in spring 2006 with a degree in sculpture.

The International Sculpture Center established the annual Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award program in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and to encourage their continued commitment to the field. It was also designed to draw attention to the sculpture programs of the participating universities, colleges and art schools. The award program’s growing publicity resulted in a record number of participating institutions, including more than 140 universities, colleges and art school sculpture programs from six countries for a total of 377 nominated students.

A distinguished panel comprised of artist and educator Lynne Allen, independent curator and public art consultant Marsha Moss and artist Beverly Semmes selected 22 winners and 10 honorable mentions through a competitive process.
