Hopper Prize for Visual Artists

Deadline: May 21

The Hopper Prize is a grant-making institution and digital archiving platform offering a series of individual artist grants on a bi-annual basis totaling $10,000.00 USD.

The Hopper Prize was established to provide grants, visibility and career-enhancing validation to artists who demonstrate a serious commitment to their work.

We accept submissions for grants through a bi-annual open call. Each grant cycle is juried by a new team of contemporary curators who select grant winners on the basis of artistic excellence and the promise of future potential.

We work with leading curators to review your submissions. This is an opportunity to get your work in front of prominent contemporary curators. Spring 2019 grant winners will be selected by:

Leilani Lynch, Curator, The Bass Museum of Art Miami Beach
Rachel Adams, Chief Curator & Director of Programs, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts

The Hopper Prize is open to all artists age 18 and older working in any media. There are no restrictions on genre, subject matter or media.

Inclusivity is one of our core values and a guiding principle of our organization. We are committed to supporting artists from diverse cultural backgrounds at all stages of their professional careers. We view the field of visual arts in its broadest and most inclusive sense and therefore make our awards available to artists engaged in artistic practices spanning all methods of production.

10 artists each receive $1,000 USD annually (5 in Spring, 5 in Fall)

30 artists from each grant cycle (60 annually) will have their work archived at hopperprize.org

Details and an online application are available at hopperprize.org.
