We partner with a national arts funder, Artadia, to support outstanding Bay Area artists. We recognize one standout artist with a $15,000 award. Winning artists are introduced to curators and gallerists through studio visits, events, and meetings, and are given opportunities to participate in exchange exhibitions.
The application process is open once every two years. The San Francisco Foundation does not administer this award. Artists may apply for the awards through Artadia.
