Every year I go back and forth, but, in the end, I always apply. Yeah, it’s twenty-five bucks. I could buy some Drunken Noodles and Thai Iced Tea instead, but hopefully, the benefits of applying for the Sondheim Prize will last longer and be healthier for me in the long run.

Just remember, even if you don’t get picked for anything, this application is a great opportunity to have your work seen by top-notch jurors Robert Nickas, Magdalena Sawon and Hamza Walker, as well as ALL the curators in town who put together Artscape Shows. Where else can you pay $25 and have that kind of exposure for your work?

The big $25,000 prize would be nice, but sometimes it’s also nice just to participate and be involved in your own art community.

Artscape is a big, hot mess of good & bad art, fried food on a stick, and searing temperatures, but it’s OUR HOT MESS. Let’s make it count, everybody! Send those apps in and make Jim Lucio earn his big bucks. Just DO it!

APPLY NOW FOR THE $25,000 JANET & WALTER SONDHEIM PRIZE
Application deadline: Postmarked or delivered by December 18, 2009.

The Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize is designed to assist visual artist or visual artist collaborators in furthering their careers by awarding a $25,000 fellowship. The prestigious competition is open to visual artists working in the Greater Baltimore region. The deadline is fast approaching for the fifth annual prize. Applications should be postmarked or hand delivered by Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5pm. The prize is in conjunction with the annual Artscape juried exhibition and is produced by The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) and Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). An award announcement and reception takes place Saturday, July 10, 2010 at 7pm at the BMA, located 10 Art Museum Drive.

Approximately six finalists will be reviewed for the prize. Their work will be shown in the Alvin and Fanny B. Thalheimer Galleries of the BMA. In addition, an exhibition of the semi-finalists’ work will be shown during the Artscape weekend in the Decker and Meyerhoff galleries of MICA, located at 1303 W. Mount Royal Avenue.

The fellowship winner will be selected after a review of the art installed at the BMA and an interview with each finalist by the jurors. The remaining finalists not selected for the fellowship will each receive a $1,000 honorarium. Artist collaborators will receive a single $25,000 prize if chosen as the winner or a $1,000 honorarium that will be equally divided among the members of the group. A panel consisting of three accomplished jurors from the art industry will judge entries. The jurors are Robert Nickas, Magdalena Sawon and Hamza Walker.
