The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts announces the finalists for the 11th annual Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize. The finalists are Theo Anthony, Stephanie Barber, Darcie Book ’04, Larry Cook, FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture (Co-founded by Hannah Brancato ’07 ’11 and Rebecca Nagle ’08), Eric Kruszewski and Christos Palios. The competition awards a $25,000 fellowship to assist in furthering the career of a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in the Greater Baltimore region.

The prize gives artists an opportunity to exhibit their work at The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), which is renowned for its collection of modern and contemporary art. The Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize is held in conjunction with the annual Artscape juried exhibition and produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts in partnership with the BMA and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The competition winner is announced during an award ceremony and reception on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 7pm at The Baltimore Museum of Art, located at 10 Art Museum Drive.

In addition, M&T Bank has again partnered with the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts to grant the M&T Bank Sondheim Finalists’ Awards, which provide a $2,500 honorarium for each of the remaining finalists not selected for the fellowship.

The finalists’ works of art will be exhibited in the BMA’s Thalheimer special exhibition galleries from Wednesday, June 22 through Sunday, July 31, 2016. The winner of the competition is selected from the exhibition at the BMA, after a review of the installed art and an interview with each finalist by the jurors. The 2016 competition jurors are Tim Griffin, Rujeko Hockley and Mia Locks.
