John Coleman, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota, just announced that Tuck has been selected to receive the Alumni of Notable Achievement award at a ceremony in June. Only one percent of CLA alumni are chosen for this distinction.
The dean cited “your 39-year career as a respected professor of sculpture and your prolific and highly-decorated creation of art” as the reason for this award.
Next year is the CLA’s 150thanniversary. Tuck received his BA in 1961 and MFA in 1964 at the University of Minnesota.
