The 34th Annual Arthur Ross Awards
On the evening of Monday, May 4, 2015, over 400 supporters of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) gathered in New York City to celebrate the 34th annual Arthur Ross Awards for Excellence in the Classical Tradition.
The 2015 award recipients were ADAM Architecture (Architecture); Moule & Polyzoides (Community Design/Civic Design/City Planning); Merchant Ivory Productions and James Ivory (Fine Arts); Elizabeth White and Samuel G. White (Writing/Editing); and Léon Krier (Board of Directors Honor).
“One thing that struck me about all of our award winners was how collaborative their work is, dependent on so many other artists, artisans, professionals, and collaborators. This is no surprise, as one of the ICAA’s most unique qualities is how our community includes and embraces so many different fields,” said ICAA President Peter Lyden in his remarks.
ICAA Chairman Mark Ferguson presented awards to each of the five recipients, while highlighting images from their key projects.
Established in 1982, the Arthur Ross Awards further the educational mission of the ICAA by recognizing the achievements and contributions of architects, painters, sculptors, artisans, landscape designers, educators, publishers, patrons, and others dedicated to preserving and advancing the classical tradition.
Honorary Chairs for the evening were Mrs. Janet Ross and Ambassador William J. vanden Heuvel.
