7th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale
Russell and Danny Simmons announced Philadelphia’s Darius Frank as the Grand Finale Winner at the 7th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series competition. An annual collaboration between Bombay Sapphire and Russell and Danny Simmons’ Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, the North American search for the next big name in visual arts involved thousands of online submissions and a series of regional gallery events. New York-based nonprofit arts organization, CREATIVE TIME, made a splash at Basel as honorary judge where the winner will go on to collaborate on a groundbreaking public arts project scheduled to be unveiled in Spring 2017.
