Since 2017, Dell Medical School has awarded the annual Ken Shine Prize in Health Leadership to an innovative national leader who has made significant contributions to advancing health and the health care system. Through a partnership between Landmarks and the estate of artist Seymour Lipton, all Ken Shine award recipients receive a small bronze reproduction of Lipton’s Pioneer—one of several works from Landmarks’ collection sited at Dell Med.
On January 14, Dr. Anthony Fauci received the award from Dell Medical School Dean Clay Johnston. As Dell Med states, “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in countless ways that we’re just beginning to realize. Few people have the combination of experience, access and insight to understand that better than this year’s Ken Shine Prize in Health Leadership honoree: Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.” Watch a recording of the virtual event on Vimeo.
Pioneer was fabricated by Lipton in 1957 and donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art by Mrs. Albert A. List in 1958. It is one of the three Monel metal sculptures by the artist that came to Landmarks as part of a long-term loan of 28 sculptures from The Metropolitan.
