Richard Serra to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award from Americans for the Arts

You know who's going to have a pretty decent next few months? Richard Serra. Starting next Friday, Gagosian London will show of four giant steel sculptures, and all the Frieze-goes shall swoon and swoon. A show of his new large-scale drawings, "Richard Serra: Vertical and Horizontal Reversals," will open to the requisite grand fanfare at David Zwirner on November 7. Oh, and Kenny Scharf took some tasty rips of a bong inside a Serra sculpture in Texas. That must feel pretty cool.

Now, Mr. Serra will once again be feted, as he’s set to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Americans for the Arts gala, held October 20 at Cipriani 42nd Street. And who doesn’t like going to Cipriani? They greet you with bellinis!

Other recipients of the nonprofit’s National Art Awards include philanthropists Vicki and Roger Sant and the dancer David Hallberg. Shepard Fairey is the featured artist. Congrats to all.
