Tribeca lines up art prizes

Sherman, Walker donate works

Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker and incognito street artist JR are among the artists whose works will be given as trophies to the filmmakers of winning pics in the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival’s jury competitions.

Eleven artists are contributing one work each, ranging from paintings to photos to sculptures. Tribeca’s link to the art world comes in part through fest co-founder Robert De Niro, whose late father was an abstract expressionist painter.

Peter Dayton, Stephen Hannock, Clifford Ross, Walton Ford, Kim Keever, Nathan Sawaya, Hugo Tillman and Stanley Whitney round out the contributing creatives, whose pieces will be awarded to filmmakers in competish categories including narrative feature and doc for both world cinema and New York-centric pics.

Artworks are set for public display in downtown Gotham April 5-25, prior to the fest’s kudo ceremony April 26.

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival runs April 18-29.
