NEW YORK, NY.- Galerie Lelong announced that Jaume Plensa received the 2009 Marsh Award for Public Sculpture. Plensa received the award for his work Dream, which has a distinct presence in St. Helens, England at four tons and 20 meters high. The award is presented annually by the Marsh Christian Trust, in partnership with the Public Monuments & Sculpture Association, to honor contemporary or restored British public sculptures.

The gallery would also like to congratulate Petah Coyne, Yoko Ono, and Krzysztof Wodiczko for their recent awards.

On November 4, Petah Coyne was one of two honorees at the benefit for the CUE Art Foundation, which commended Coyne for her "outstanding achievements in sculpture and mixed media installation." In May, Coyne will have a retrospective exhibition at MASS MoCA, the first major monographic show by a female artist in the museum's ten-year history.

Yoko Ono received the Urban Visionaries Award in Visual Art at the 150th Urban Visionaries Award Dinner and Silent Art Auction at the Cooper Union on November 2. The awards recognize individuals whose exceptional contributions in the community exemplify the values championed by the Cooper Union.

The Polish Ministry of Culture recently awarded this year's gold medal of the Gloria Artis Cultural Merit Award to Krzysztof Wodiczko. 2009 has been a significant year for Wodiczko, who participated in the biennials in Venice, Athens, and Liverpool and is currently presenting a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. ...OUT OF HERE: The Veterans Project opened at the ICA Boston on November 4 and runs through March 28.
