Breaking news–West Prize to Dufalas!!!!


From Claire Iltis at Fleisher-Ollman:

Hi Libby and Roberta,

I don’t know if you’ve heard this already, but last night The Dufala Brothers were awarded the West Prize Grand Prize!

Dufala Brothers
Steven and Billy Blaise Dufala, Ice Cream Tank Truck,, now part of the West Collection. You saw it first at Space 1026.

We had to tear them away from last minute preparations for their show at F/O, which opens tonight, in T-minus-six-hours (assuming they’re both still standing by then)…


The prize is $25,000 cash on the barrelhead no strings attached and was awarded last night at the opening of the West Prize Finalists exhibit!!!

So here’s what’s happening tonight:

Trophy: Steven and Billy Blaise Dufala
February 27-March 28, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, February 27 from 6-8pm
