Sondheim Art Prize Finalists Exhibition Award Ceremony

August 17 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Registration required. The Walters Art Museum, in collaboration with the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, is proud to present the 18th-annual Janet & Walter Sondheim Art Prize Finalists Exhibition. The exhibition showcases the work of three finalists—Kyrae Dawaun, Nekisha Durrett, and Abigail Lucien—in this prestigious competition, which awards a $30,000 fellowship to assist in furthering the career of a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in the greater Baltimore region. Attend the award ceremony and reception on the Sculpture Court and be among the first to celebrate the winner and mingle with members of Baltimore’s arts community. The 2023 Janet & Walter Sondheim Art Prize is made possible through the generous annual support of presenting sponsor M&T Bank and the Maryland State Arts Council.
