Recipients of the Trustees' Award
In 2003 the ANS began the tradition of honoring deserving individuals with the Trustees’ Award at the ANS Annual Dinner Gala held in January. The Trustees confer the award on those individuals who have helped in extraordinary ways to forward the mission of the Society.
In 2016, we presented for the first time a new Trustees’ Award Medal created by the famed Portuguese artist João Duarte. A medalist of worldwide renown, Duarte graduated in 1978 from the Escola Superior de Belas-Artes de Lisboa and serves on the Fine Arts Faculty of the Universidade de Lisboa. Over the decades, he has focused primarily on sculpture and medallic art, producing 45 monuments for the Portuguese public and a dozen commemorative coins for the Portuguese Mint. But it is his more than 150 medals that have captivated critics and earned him such prestigious awards as the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Prize for Innovation and Creativity in 2002 and the ANS J. Sanford Saltus Award for Signal Achievement in the Art of the Medal in 2011. Duarte’s medals have been featured in over a dozen solo shows, including a 30-year retrospective held in 2010 at the Portuguese Mint.
For the 2020 ANS Gala, Duarte designed a specially-commissioned piece in honor and appreciation of Dr. Ute Wartenberg’s two-decades of dedicated leadership at the ANS and, for the 2021 ANS Virtual Gala, he designed a limited-edition pin.
