Stanley Whitney, professor emeritus and former chair of Painting and Drawing at Temple's Tyler School of Art, has been awarded the first Robert De Niro Sr. prize for achievement in painting. The merit-based prize, which is given to mid-career artists, was established to honor the work and legacy of accomplished painter De Niro Sr. “Stanley’s work and the way he practices his craft both show what this prize is all about — honoring a person with great passion for and lifelong commitment to art,” said Robert De Niro.
