This year’s honoree, Lin Emery, is a renowned kinetic sculptor whose works resound with the powerful forms and forces of nature. She notes that her work is, “kinetic...and the elements [causing movement] are derived from nature. I borrow natural elements — wind, water, magnets — to set them in motion. The rhythms are influenced by infinite variables: the points of balance, the normal frequency of each form, the interruption of the counterpoise.” We are proud to honor Emery’s graceful sculptural masterworks at this auspicious 80th anniversary celebration.

Lin Emery (b.1928) is a renowned sculptor based in New Orleans, LA. She is represented by Arthur Rogers Gallery in New Orleans and Kouros Gallery in New York CIty. She has studied at Columbia University, the Sorbonne University in Paris, and the New York Sculpture School. Emery has been recognized internationally as a formative figure in kinetic sculpture, with commissions gracing sites in Tulsa, OK; New Orleans, LA; and New York, NY. Emery is a past recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts “Interarts” grant, holds an honorary doctorate from Loyola University of the South (New Orleans), and has been honored with retrospectives at the New Orleans Museum of Art (New Orleans, LA) and the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art (Tarpon Springs, FL).
