Juan Gomez at the American Academy, May 16, 2007

On May 16th, 2007, Juan Gomez was presented with the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation Award at the American Academy of Arts and Letters. An exhibit of his work, along with the work of other award winners, runs all month. Juan also appears in zingmagazine issue #21.

From the American Academy website:

The Rosenthal Foundation supports two awards of $5000. One, established in 1956, is for a work of fiction published during the preceding year that is a considerable literary achievement. The second, created in 1959, is for a young painter of distinction who has not yet been accorded due recognition.
