Congratulations to Dr. Rogala for being named a recipient of the 2010 Meier Achievement Award:
Meier Achievement Awards for 2010 Gives Thanks for Work of Four Artists
The 2010 awardees are classical music producer James Ginsburg, sculptor Terry Karpowicz, multi-media innovator Miroslaw Rogala, and dancer/choreographer Molly Shanahan.
Miroslaw Rogala is the Foundation’s first interdisciplinary achievement awardee. His interactive multimedia work combines drawing, photography and computer skills, using the viewer’s body as a triggering device. Rogala’s eGarden Project documents Chicago’s Washington Square. The Museum of Contemporary Art showed his interactive public art Nature Is Leaving Us in 1989, and his Divided We Stand in 1997. Rogala sells still photographs from his projects online. Rogala quipped, “Writing software for art is building a paintbrush, hair by hair.”
