Americans for the Arts
Jorge and Darlene Pérez Prize in Public Art & Civic Design
- Budget: $30,000 cash award
Eligibility: The application process is open to anyone who meets the application requirements.
The 2020 Pérez Prize in Public Art & Civic Design will recognize an artist with a track record of exemplary work created or produced with intention to advance community, civic, or social goodby implementing art-based processes and/or projects that lead to positive change in the built environment of a local community. This includes increasing awareness of issues, promoting dialogue, shifting attitudes, promoting healing, motivating action, or improving conditions of equity, access, and inclusion.
The 2020 Prize will be given to an individual artist. This includes public artists, community-based and socially engaged artists, artist-activists, culture bearers, and teaching artists working in out-of-school community contexts. We recognize that art is often a collective process, and that its full realization rarely rests on a single individual. Artists working in organizational contexts will be considered as well as those working independently. Organizational contexts may include design teams, collaborations, and art groups or collectives.
