The award comes with a $4,000 unrestricted cash prize that is funded by Artadia and NADA. Lia Gangitano, the founder and director of Lower East Side nonprofit Participant Inc., and Daniel Byers, a curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art, served as jurors for the prize. Founded as The ArtCouncil in 1997 by investment banker and art collector Christopher E. Vroom, Artadia supports visual artists with unrestricted awards and connections to a network of opportunities, while providing local communities with national exposure.
