The University Museum of Contemporary Art is the winner in the 2013 New England Museum Association Publication Award competition, with Céleste Boursier-Mougenot exhibition catalog in first place.

The solo exhibition of work by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot was presented at the University Museum of Contemporary Art in Amherst (MA) in the fall of 2012, supported by Etant donnés, The French-American Fund for Contemporary Art. It was the artist's first occasion to present a group of his works within the same exhibition space. Internationally acclaimed, the French artist is well-known for his innovative work, playing with musical and the visual.

The exhibition catalog was published by the University Museum of Contemporary Art (Amherst, MA) and Paula Cooper Gallery (New York), and was presented among 168 other publications from more than 55 museums. The judges were extremely impressed with the high quality of the design and expressed pride to come from a region that produces such high caliber work. 

First place in the Exhibition Catalogue category: Céleste Boursier-Mougenot // Designer: Paul Pereira

Second place in the Marketing/PR Materials category: Céleste Boursier-Mougenot // Designer: Jack Cavacco, UMass Creative Services
