The American photographer Nan Goldin has been awarded one of the country’s most prestigious arts awards. The Edward MacDowell medal is given by the artist residency program The MacDowell Colony to an individual artist who has made an outstanding contribution in his or her field. It is rotated among different artistic disciplines and has only been awarded to three other photographers: Lee Friedlander (1986), Harry Callahan (1993), and Robert Frank (2002). Other winners of the prestigious award include Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe and Leonard Bernstein. -Phaidon.com-
