San Francisco artist Kristine Mays was named grand prize winner of the 5th annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Contest, a collaboration with Russell and Danny Simmons' Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Titled "The Entanglement of Black Men In America," Mays' wire sculpture is a symbol of racial profiling in the aftermath of the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin.
