The Farnsworth Art Museum announced Dahlov Ipcar as the recipient of the 2012 Maine in America award in the seventh year of the honor. The Farnsworth Art Museum’s Presidents Council annually recognizes an individual or group who has made an outstanding contribution to Maine’s role in American art.
The previous winners of the Maine in America award include John Wilmerding (2006), Andrew Wyeth (2007), Will Barnet (2008), Robert Indiana (2009), Alex Katz (2010) and Paul Caponigro (2011).
Since her first solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1939, Ipcar’s works have been collected by art institutions that include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York City. Her work is in collections of the leading art museums of Maine, as well as in many corporate and private collections throughout the country. In 1972, Ipcar and her husband Adolph together received the Maine Governor’s Award for “significant contributions to Maine in the broad field of the arts and humanities.” She has also received honorary degrees from The University of Maine and Colby and Bates colleges.
