INDIANA---No one expected this. For the first time, one artist won both the public vote and juried Grand Prizes at the 2014 ArtPrize — Indianapolis artist Anila Quayyum Agha. This Wednesday, while the entry "Intersections" is on view in Dallas, Texas, the Indianapolis Arts Council Creative Renewal Arts Fellow will speak at the Indianapolis Museum of Art about her entry. "Intersections" is a 6.5 foot wooden cube made of laser-etched Islamic patterning illuminated from the interior. This public conversation with Agha also includes ArtPrize Director of Exhibitions, Kevin Buist.
