About the Artist

Sylwia Tur (Seattle) received a 2008 GAP to purchase a shovel and GPS tracking system. Sylwia is interested in the idea of excess in the artistic world in that many pieces of art that one makes will never be sold or shown. Since she works primarily in clay, it seems appropriate to bury several old pieces of work around the greater Seattle area. She will mark their locations with a GPS device and display them on a web site.

From the Artist

Receiving this award definitely gave me wings to produce the best work that I can. It is also very valuable to me to know that fellow artists who were on the panel chose my work and my project… it is great to know that others believe in me and recognize me for my work. Thank you!
