    Liz Deschenes wins Rappaport Prize for her photography


    Photographer Liz Deschenes is the latest recipient of the prestigious Rappaport Prize, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum announced Thursday. The prize, which comes with a $25,000 check, is given annually to an established contemporary artist with strong ties to New England. (The Rappaport Prize is endowed by the Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation.) In a statement, Katy Kline, interim executive director of the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, said
    Deschenes is a deserving recipient. “Her deft and inventive interventions into photographic materials and processes are concerned with perception rather than description, and her beautiful and mysterious works align closely with deCordova’s emphasis on photography and sculpture.” The Rappaport Prize Lecture with Deschenes will be held Oct. 16 at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
