Smack Mellon's Hot Picks program was launched in 2007. The top artists, as selected from the Studio Program applicants by a panel of esteemed curators, arts professionals, and established artists, are featured on the Smack Mellon website for one year.
The panelists for this year's Studio Program applications were: Mark Beasley, Curator at Performa; Jennifer McGregor, Director of Arts and Senior Curator at Wave Hill; and Julie McKim, Director of Kunsthalle Galapagos. Preliminary panelists were: Yoko Inoue, Chelsea Knight, Shana Moulton, Lina Puerta, Stephen Sollins, and Saya Woolfalk (all former or current Smack Mellon studio artists).
