The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA) is proud to announce the tenth edition of the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize. The prize will award a $25,000 fellowship to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in the Baltimore region.
Approximately six finalists will be selected for the final review for the prize; their work will be exhibited in the Thalheimer Galleries of the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA). Additionally, an exhibition of the semi-finalists’ work will be featured in a large exhibition during Artscape weekend (July 17-19, 2015).
The fellowship winner will be selected from the Baltimore Museum of Art exhibition after review of the installed art and an interview with each finalist by the jurors. Artist collaborators, if chosen as the winner, will receive a single $25,000 prize that will be equally divided among the members of the group.
