2015 "Sakip Sabanci Art Awards" were given on November 17, 2015 at a ceremony held at "The Seed" Conference Center in Sakip Sabanci Museum.

 

Maintained by the Sabanci Foundation to fulfill the wish of the late Sakip Sabanci, the 22nd “Sakip Sabanci Art Awards” were presented at a ceremony with the attendance of Turkan Sabanci; Prof. Yalin Karayagiz, President of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University; Sevil Sabanci, member of Sabanci Holding Board of Directors; Husnu Pacacioglu, Vice-President of Sabanci Foundation Board of Trustees; Zerrin Koyunsagan, General Manager of the Sabanci Foundation; academicians, as well as many distinguished guests from business and art circles.

 

The award ceremony commenced with a short film based on the theme “Sakip Sabanci and Art”. Speaking at the ceremony, Zerrin Koyunsagan expressed that children born 22 years ago graduated from the university this year and Sakip Sabanci was already thinking about them even before they opened their eyes to the world. She went onto say: “Art Awards were presented with late Sakip Sabanci’s aim of supporting art, guiding the young to art and encouraging achievements. Believing that art and artists were the wealth of societies, Mr. Sabanci wanted to crown achievements with awards. Therefore, he valued contributing to creative powers of artists and encouraging people to love art. As the Sabanci Foundation, we also embrace his valuable legacy and preserve it by passing it down to new generations.”

 

Following the speeches, students graduating with a degree from the “Painting, Sculpture and Traditional Turkish Arts” Departments in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University received their awards.  Following the award ceremony, guests were invited by the Sabanci Foundation to tour the “ZERO. Countdown to the Future” exhibition in Sakip Sabanci Museum.
