$10,000 toward Dots, Blobs & Angels: John David Rigsby, 1950-1993, a retrospective exhibition on the painter/sculptor, with accompanying catalogue and educational programs, organized by director/curator Cydney Payton. Originally from Alabama, Rigsby worked and exhibited in Tunisia, New York, South Carolina, Colorado and Texas. Using a personal iconography that colorfully incorporates repetition and form, Rigsby explored abstraction by working in series, at times inspired by found objects such as used books and scrap rubber.
