The David Fagin Award

Through the generosity of David Fagin's family and friends, this memorial cash prize is awarded each year to Senior Art Majors who exhibit high professional standards in the field of visual arts.

The David Fagin Award honors David, a sensitive, accomplished sculptor whose life had profound impact upon those who touched it at any tangent. He was struck down in the midst of a most gratifying retirement. He sought culture and knowledge as a devotee of the theater and a discerning collector of paintings. In recent years he participated in the local college community, particularly at Manhattanville, auditing diverse courses. He was a sensitive worker and supporter of sociological ends in the Westchester area. His was a kind of gentle nature, straightforward, with indisputable integrity, helpful to all who approached him.
