$4,000 toward the public programing costs associated with an exhibition on the sculptor, organized by the University’s Assisant Vice Chancellor Judy Jacobi. Sugarman lived and worked in New York and created large colorful sculptures, some of which exist as wall or floor pieces. Inspired by his early interest in the compositions of Chinese painting and Matisse, Sugarman produced rhythmical pieces made from jagged geometric forms that challenged the conventions of figure-based sculpture.
