Seattle Art Museum
2021 Betty Bowen Award
Eligibility: The award is open to visual artists in all media working in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho. Artists of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Apply now for the annual Betty Bowen Award, which honors a Northwest artist for their original, exceptional, and compelling work. The winner is awarded an unrestricted cash prize of $15,000, and a selection of their work will be shown at the Seattle Art Museum in the spring of 2022. Two Special Recognition Awards in the amount of $2,500 are often granted at the discretion of the Betty Bowen Committee. Due to the financial hardships many creatives continue to face due to COVID-19, the Committee is extending the awards to include three more opportunities at $1,250 each.
