The Gibbes Museum of Art announced the 2020 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art. Each year, the 1858 Prize is presented by Society 1858, a member auxiliary group of the Gibbes Museum of Art comprised of young professionals. Presented annually, the $10,000 cash prize is awarded to one artist whose work demonstrates the highest level of artistic achievement in any media, while contributing to a new understanding of art in the South.
Past winners include Donté K. Hayes (2019), Leo Twiggs (2018), Bo Bartlett (2017), Alicia Henry (2016), Deborah Luster (2015), Sonya Clark (2014), John Westmark (2012), Patrick Dougherty (2011), and Radcliffe Bailey (2010). Submissions for 2020 will be accepted online at www.1858prize.org from September 1 – October 11, 2020.
“We have seen past 1858 prize winners go on to receive many accolades and are thrilled to be announcing the return of this esteemed prize,” says Anne Siegfried, President of Society 1858. “Through this award we are able to help validate the works of a Southern artist and support their passion for the arts, which is needed now more than ever.”
