Beverly Pepper Elected as a National Academician

Beverly Pepper has been elected as a National Academician. The National Academy was founded in 1825 to encourage the development of visual art in America through education and exhibition. Each year, vanguards in the field of art and architecture are granted membership through the nomination of current Academicians. Pepper, known for her pioneering large-scale, site specific works, was nominated by fellow sculptor Judith Shea. Membership places Pepper in the same company as Chuck Close, Maya Lin, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Gehry, and many of the most influential American artists and architects of the past two hundred years.  The 2011 National Academician Elects include Christo, Lynda Benglis, Elizabeth Diller & Ricardo Scofido, and James Turrell.
