Artadia is pleased to announce the 2021 Atlanta Artadia Finalists:

The Finalists will each receive virtual studio visits with second-round jurors, who will ultimately select three artists to receive $10,000 unrestricted funds.This year’s Finalists jurors were Raina Lampkins-Fielder, Curator, Souls Grown Deep Foundation, Atlanta; Veronica Roberts, Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art, The Blanton Museum of Art, Austin; and Claire Tancons, Independent Curator based in New Orleans.

Regarding the process, Veronica Roberts states “Participating in the Atlanta Artadia Award Jury was deeply gratifying because supporting artists and their growth is always significant, especially at this moment. I have so valued the experience of getting to know these Atlanta artists and hearing Raina and Clare’s very astute observations. This process offered a deep dive into art-making, truly getting me excited about exploring artists coming out of Atlanta.”
