At an awards ceremony and dinner, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum announced the winners of Rob Pruitt’s 2010 Art Awards, the second annual celebration honoring notable individuals, exhibitions, and projects that made a significant contribution to the field of contemporary art. The fundraising event benefitted the Guggenheim Foundation and visual art nonprofit White Columns on Wednesday, December 8, 2010, at the nightclub and music venue Webster Hall.

Returning to the awards this year, James Franco ramped up his on-stage role by singing for the audience with artist Kalup Linzy – which earned a position on the New York Times’ “The 110 Things New Yorkers Talked About in 2010″.
Fiery Furnaces’ Matthew Friedberger composed the night’s music and performed with his orchestra. New to this year’s event were dancing pandas that brought Pruitt’s art to life, and naked live statues, a nod to Marina Abramovic’s work.
production glue also supported the first annual awards, held at the Guggenheim Museum, and was thrilled to return for its second iteration. production glue once again provided the technical expertise, equipment, and experience necessary to execute the event seamlessly between sponsor, producer, press, conceptual creators, venue and talent.
Thanks to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Guggenheim Director of Special Events Bronwyn Keenan, and Rob Pruitt for bringing us into this inspiring project. We look forward to continuing our relationship – and hope to see you all at Rob Pruitt’s awards in 2011!
