Westport sculptor and arts educator Steffi Friedman will be honored Sunday by Neighborhood Studios of Fairfield County (NS) at its Spring Gala at the Westport Country Playhouse. The event will feature a benefit performance by Dance Theatre of Harlem.
Friedman has been teaching pro bono at NS since 2007. A native of Berlin, Germany, she and her family fled the Nazis in 1938 and made their way to the United States, where Friedman studied art at Pratt Institute and Columbia University.
Her commissioned works are represented in more than 150 collections throughout the country, including Temple Israel in Westport. She has served as a board member of the Society of Connecticut Sculptors, the National Sculpture Society, the International Sculpture Society, and the Westport Arts Center.
This is the second time Friedman will be honored by Neighborhood Studios. She received the 2008 Pat Hart Service Award, which recognizes the generosity and dedication to arts education of an individual or organization.
