2011 Independent Weekly Arts Awards Announced Today

I was honored today by the alt-weekly of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, N.C. “Triangle” region.  I wish longtime and integral JLP staffers Dan Partridge and Lauren Hart had been mentioned, and CDS exhibitions director Courtney Reid-Eaton who is central to the ongoing traveling operation.  But otherwise I’m flattered.  I’m grateful for Aaron Greenwald’s quote:  Dos Passos’ work was an influence on the varied narrative structure of the JLP book. – S.S.

    Congratulations, Sam, on a well-deserved honor. This exhibition makes it crystal-clear that W. Eugene Smith’s work is as alive today as it was when the pictures were made. The vitality and power of Smith’s vision is intact in all the remarkable photographs you bring to light. Your tireless work, along with that of your assistants, helps assure that this great artist’s accomplishments are remembered and appreciated for generations to come.
