Donald Lipski is a sculptor living and working in Philadelphia since 2006. While best known for his poetic combining and altering of existing things, he has in recent years created many prominent and compelling public sculptures. Since coming to prominence with his Museum of Modern Art installation Gathering Dust in 1979-which consists of thousands of tiny sculptures pinned to the walls-his work has been shown in galleries and museums around the world, and he is in the permanent collections of dozens of museums, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney, The Menil Collection, and The Chicago Art Institute. He is the winner of many awards and honors, including The Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts Awards, and The Academy Award of the American Academy of Arts & Letters, and The Rome Prize.
