"Lucelia Artist Award"
2001-02-23 until 2001-05-01
Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Renwick Gallery
Washington, DC, USA

The dynamism of the 21st century is reflected by so many artists working today, said Elizabeth Broun, the museum's Margaret and Terry Stent Director. The Lucelia Artist Award enhances the museum ' s commitment to contemporary artists and honors the achievement and promise of living artists who enrich our society with their insight and creativity. The Lucelia Artist Award will annually recognize an American artist under the age of 50 who has produced a significant body of artwork that demonstrates exceptional creativity. The $25,000 prize is intended to encourage the artist's future development and experimentation. The award is funded by The Lucelia Foundation, based in New York, N. Y. The Lucelia Foundation is a private foundation that supports the visual arts, specifically 19th-century American and contemporary art.

Building an exciting contemporary art program through exhibitions, acquisitions, new media initiatives and interaction with artists is a priority for the museum, said Lynda Roscoe Hartigan, chief curator at the museum. The Lucelia Artist Award will play a major role in achieving our goal.

In its recognition of an outstanding contemporary artist, the Lucelia Artist Award greatly enhances the profile of contemporary art in American society and in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, said Sidra Stich, the Lucelia Artist Award executive director. What a superb way to begin the 21st century!
