ArtMolds, a New Jersey based manufacturer of art kits and the Association of Lifecasters International, (ALI) co-sponsored the first annual Life Casting Awards for outstanding artistic achievement in the service of humanity. They jointly announced the winners of the 2005 Life Casting Awards today.
The specially commissioned Life Casting Award statue, was created for the event by internationally renowned artist and sculptor Philip Hitchcock, designer of the L.A. Ovations Award, and who recently created over 24 life castings for Fox's hit TV show "The Swan."
"This unique award was created to promote public awareness for the art of life casting, which is an ancient art form dating back 3500 years," said Ed McCormick, co-founder and Managing Director of Lifecasters International. "But we also want to emphasize the spirit of giving. The Life Casting Awards were awarded to artists who have created a meritorious life casting work which has been gifted to a member of the general public."
