“Hamza Walker, AB’88, Director of Education and Associate Curator for the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, has received one of the art world’s most prominent awards, the Ordway Prize.

Selected from a global pool of contenders by a jury of leading art figures, Walker received the curator/writer award for his “significant impact on the field of contemporary art.” Also honored was Polish artist Artur Żmijewski. Each winner will receive an unrestricted cash prize of $100,000 for the award, which is presented by Creative Link for the Arts and the New Museum.”
