Semifinalists for Sondheim Artscape Prize Announced
The Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize, which awards $25,000 to an up-and-coming visual artist or visual-artist collaborators living and working in the Greater Baltimore area, has announced its semifinalists. The list of more 40 semifinalists will be whittled down to about six finalists who will have their work displayed in the Alvin and Fanny Blaustein Thalheimer Galleries of the Baltimore Museum of Art June 16 through July 29.
Jurors for this year’s seventh annual competition include curator Carlos Basualdo, gallery director Jane Hait, and artist Shinique Smith. A reception will follow the highly anticipated announcement of the prize winner on July 14 at the BMA. A few days after that, on July 20, a complete exhibition of the remaining semifinalists’ work will go on display in the Decker and Meyerhoff galleries of MICA through Aug. 5.
