Joe Engel 2021 Grand Home Furnishings Best in Show WinnerROANOKE, Va. (Aug. 21, 2021) – The Taubman Museum of Art is pleased to announce the 63rd Annual Sidewalk Art Show award winners.

This year’s guest juror, Seth Feman, deputy director for art and interpretation and curator of photography at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Va., selected the winners.

“My favorite thing about exploring the work today was seeing the creativity and inventiveness of so many artists,” said Feman. “It was really hard to choose the winners! There are just so many great works. When it came down to it, I decided to choose things that were not only very accomplished technically, but also showed a high level of risk-taking. I think right now we need creative risk-takers more than ever, and so I’m glad to champion their work in particular. Everyone who participated in the show has something to celebrate. The future seems very bright with so much creativity on display in Roanoke.”
