Pakistan-born and bred, Indianapolis-based Anila Quayyum Agha has swept the grand prizes, winning the $200,000 popular one, and splitting the purse for the $200,000 juried prize with Richmond, Virginia-based artist Sonya Clark. You make us proud Anila!!! Congrats! Very happy for you. 😀

Quoting from the Observer.com,

“For the first time in ArtPrize history a winner took home both the $200,000 Public Vote Grand Prize, as well as, in a tie, $100,000 of the Juried Grand Prize. The honor went to Indianapolis-based Anila Quayyum Agha’s “Intersections,” a shadow box on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum that emulates the intricate patterns from the Alhambra in Grenada, Spain. With the help of a light, the entire room becomes flooded with the beautiful design. The news was announced tonight in a ceremony at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.”
