2006 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by Eli and Edythe Broad/The Broad Art Foundation.

Sculptor Anna Sew Hoy makes work from materials scavenged from the streets of her urban environment. The resulting agglomerations of natural and manufactured objects create forms that are funny, meditative, and poignant. She is particularly interested in expanding her audience by exploring different mechanisms for distributing her work, like creating clothing and audio CDs. She graduated with an MFA from Hunter College in New York. Her work has been included in group exhibitions such asOne Way or Anotherat the Asia Society in New York andDiamond Hand Grenadeat Midway Contemporary Art in Minneapolis. She has been an artist in residence at the Space Program of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation in New York.
