Org bestows De Niro Prize

Artist Stanley Whitney honored

Artist Stanley Whitney has been selected to receive the inaugural Robert De Niro Sr. Prize.

The $25,000 award is administered by the Tribeca Film Institute and the estate of Robert De Niro Sr. The kudo is designed to recognize an outstanding mid-career American painter and honor the legacy of De Niro Sr., a painter and father of actor Robert De Niro, the co-founder of Tribeca.

“Stanley’s work and the way he practices his craft both show what this prize is all about — honoring a person with great passion for and lifelong commitment to art,” said Robert De Niro. “I am so proud to pay tribute to my father through this inaugural prize in his name.”

The jury included Studio Museum curator Thelma Golden; MoMA president emerita Agnes Gund; Yale University School of Art deal Robert Storr; and The Nation art critic Barry Schwabsy.

Whitney has had exhibitions at Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, the Studio, and the Magazzino d’Arte in Rome.
