From March 2—July 7, 2019, Phoenix Art Museum will present an exhibition featuring the 2018 award and grants recipients. The Museum offers two significant opportunities for artist recognition each year: the Arlene and Morton Scult Phoenix Art Museum Artist Award, which recognizes a mid-career Arizona artist who has demonstrated a sustained commitment to their chosen medium, continuous artistic growth, and consistent artistic production; and the Artists’ Grants, which encourage emerging contemporary artists in Arizona.
THE ARLENE AND MORTON SCULT PHOENIX ART MUSEUM ARTIST AWARD
The exhibition will feature a mid-career survey of the work of Julio César Morales, the 2018 recipient of the Arlene and Morton Scult Phoenix Art Museum Artist Award. This award recognizes a mid-career Arizona artist, chosen from a pool of eligible candidates. Award recipients are chosen on the basis of the following criteria:
• The artist has been working as a professional artist in Arizona for a minimum of four (4) consecutive years,
• Is presently making and exhibiting new work,
• Has demonstrated significant artistic growth over the course of their career,
• And will be chosen based on the work they are currently producing, in addition to work that they have produced in the past.
ARTISTS' GRANTS RECIPIENTS
This exhibition will also feature new work by the 2018 Artists’ Grants recipients: Taylor James, Shanice Johnson, Elliott Jamal Robbins, and Papay Solomon. The Artists’ Grants foster the creation of contemporary art by encouraging emerging artists working in Arizona. From a competitive pool of applicants who respond to an annual open call, Artists’ Grants recipients are selected by a jury.
The Phoenix Art Museum Artists’ Grants Winners and Arlene and Morton Scult Artist Award Exhibition is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and made possible through the generosity of Arlene and Morton Scult, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and Phoenix Art Museum.
