“One unique aspect of the Tribeca Film Festival, which had its opening last night, is its Artist Awards Program sponsored by Chanel, which is displaying the trophy artwork at its SoHo boutique until April 29. Every year, 10 mostly New York-based artists donate their works to the winners of each film category. This year, the artists are: Stephen Hannock, Clifford Ross, Robert Mangold, Hank Willis Thomas, Fritz Chestnut, Mickalene Thomas, Kalup Linzy, Tom Slaughter, SunTek Chung and David Salle. Who gets what is decided during the festival. “Sometimes the artwork is more valuable than the cash prize itself,” said Jane Rosenthal, a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival and the mastermind behind the artist program.” -NYTIMES.COM
