"Call to Artists: Spertus Prize, a biennial, juried competition for the creation of Jewish ceremonial art"
2001-01-04 until 2001-12-28
Spertus
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

Entry guidelines are available for the next installment of the Spertus Prize, a biennial, juried competition for the creation of Jewish ceremonial art, sponsored by Spertus Museum (of Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, 618 South Michigan Avenue). Open to artists of all nationalities and religions, the competition awards a $10,000 prize to the winning artist, determined by the jury.

The object to be created for the upcoming Spertus Prize competition is the mezuzah (container for parchment with a biblical inscription). The winner and finalists will be awarded in the year 2002, and will be featured in an exhibition at Spertus Museum and included in a published exhibition catalogue.

The Spertus Prize is designed to stimulate debate about the criteria determining quality ceremonial art, and to foster greater appreciation for all Judaic art forms. Underwritten by Philip and Sylvia Spertus, and organized by the Spertus Museum, it has become the largest competition for contemporary Judaica.

Deadline for entries is December 28, 2001. For more information or to obtain entry guidelines, contact Spertus Prize Competition, 618 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, 60605; fax 312/922-3934; or e-mail musm@spertus.edu.
