$15,000 toward an exhibition on the sculptor with accompanying catalogue, organized by academy curator Michael Rooks. Taylor was a New York-based artist who exhibited predominately in Europe. His imaginative and playful style is exemplified in work that explores multiple angles and viewpoints. Taylor saw his sculptures as three-dimensional drawings and used industrial materials such as inner tubes, plexi-glass and foamed plastic floats in his work.

$10,000 for the microfilming of the papers of the lithographer, organized by archivists Barbara D. Aikens and Amy Morgan. Although initially a painter, Taylor turned to lithography in the 1930s while in New York and created a number of prints and illustrations for Harlem Renaissance publications. From 1942-76 he served as President of the Society of Washington Printmakers. Taylor’s finely detailed prints, which deal primarily with realistic scenes and narratives, were influenced by his personal interests in music, architecture, religion and social justice.
