Trophy designers include Bay Area Walls exhibition artists Liz Hernández, Leah Rosenberg, and Muzae Sesay, along with Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Jessalyn Aaland, Walter Hood, and Wanxin Zhang, and several members of SFMOMA’s staff.
Amy Lange, SFMOMA’s senior program associate of family programs, will be creating one of the 2022 trophies. Her sculptural piece will bring together a ceramic platform and plaque with a crocheted figurine to evoke a slow-moving liquid.
“As a textile artist, I thought it would be fun to crochet a trophy, something floppy and kind of the opposite of triumphant,” Lange said. “Of course, the ‘Most Amorphous’ award seemed like the perfect fit.”
Henderson is designing a trophy for the race too, and he also knows what he wants its award category to be.
“I want my trophy to go to the car that makes it a quarter of the way down the hill then crashes, in honor of The African Queen,” he said.
