Wickerham & Lomax, a pair of Baltimore artists, were awarded the 10th annual Sondheim Artscape Prize Saturday at a ceremony at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Daniel Wickerham and Malcolm Lomax's entry consisted of sculptures at the gallery and an interactive website designed to explore the membership of clubs and other kinds of social networks.
The two men graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009 and have been collaborating since then. The pair called it a privilege to have won the prize.
"We've been hustling in Baltimore for a long time. It's amazing to win an award in your city that you love," Lomax said by phone Saturday.
The annual award, announced by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, comes with a $25,000 fellowship and was created to recognize visual artists in Maryland and surrounding areas. In all there were 405 entries, and Wickerham & Lomax beat six other finalists to win the prize.
The finalists' work remains on display at the BMA until Aug. 9.
The work of semi-finalists for the prize will go on display at the Maryland Institute College of Art's Decker and Meyerhoff galleries on West Mount Royal Avenue from July 16 to Aug. 2.
