Massachusetts College of Art and Design alumna receives award for film


High school students who wish to pursue careers in the arts may benefit from attending a design school. Schools such as the Massachusetts College of Art and Design boast award-winning alumni. For example, Amie Siegel was named the winner of the 2010 James and Audrey Foster Prize, according to Art Daily.

Siegel's artistic media include 16mm and 35mm film, video, photography, sound and writing. She created Black Moon, a 20-minute film accompanied by nine prints, for the 2010 James and Audrey Foster Prize exhibition.

"We are delighted that Amie Siegel has been named the latest recipient of the award and would like to congratulate all the 2010 finalists, whose work truly demonstrates the strength, vitality and talent of Boston's art community," James Foster, chair, president and CEO of Charles River Laboratories, told the news source.

The award was created to recognize Boston-area artists who demonstrate exceptional promise. Recipients of the award get a $25,000 prize and an opportunity to present their work in an exhibition at the Institute for Contemporary Art.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overall employment of artists is expected to increase over the next several years.
