The 2004 SECA Art Award recipients were announced by SFMOMA today:
Rosana Castrillo Diaz, Simon Evans, Shaun O’Dell, and Josephine Taylor. The biennial SECA award “honors local artists of exceptional promise with an exhibition at SFMOMA, an accompanying catalogue, and a modest cash prize.” The SECA exhibition will be on view at SFMOMA from January 29 through May of 2005. Here’s a taste of what the SECA committee liked:
