Dutch New York, Outstanding Exhibition Catalogue
Dutch New York Between East and West: The World of Margrieta van Varick, edited by Deborah L. Krohn and Peter N. Miller with Marybeth De Filippis, has won the 2009 First Runner-Up prize in the annual Association of Art Musuem Curators' (AAMC) Awards for Excellence in the Outstanding Exhibition Catalogue category.
Sally Block, director of AAMC, said in a phone call to Marybeth De Filippis, that, in addition to the jury, many scholars were called in to read the catalogue. They felt the publication's standing within a crowd of blockbuster, big-budget exhibitions and catalogues, organized by much larger institutions, was particularly noteworthy. Dutch New York was recognized among a pool of 42 nominations in which MOMA’s Bauhaus 1919- 1933: Workshops for Modernity took the first place prize.
A complete list of nominees is available at ArtCurators.org.
