Exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art

June 25 through August 7, 2011

In conjunction with Artscape, Baltimore’s premier arts festival organized by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, the BMA presents a special exhibition of works by the finalists for the Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize. The finalists this year are Stephanie Barber, Louie Palu, Mark Parascandola, Matthew Porterfield and Rachel Rotenberg. The winner of the $25,000 prize will be announced at a special award ceremony at the BMA on July 9. 

Named after the late Baltimore civic leader Walter Sondheim and his late wife, Janet, the Sondheim Artscape Prize recognizes the achievements of visual artists living or working in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, and southeastern Pennsylvania. The semi-finalists, finalists, and winner are all chosen by an independent panel of jurors. This year’s jurors are Polly Apfelbaum, a New York-based artist; Isolde Brielmaier, curator, writer, and creative consultant; and Tina Kukielski, a curator with Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art. An exhibition of works by the semi-finalists is on view at the Maryland Institute College of Art July 14 – 31, 2011.
