William H. Johnson Foundation For The Arts
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Foundation was established in 2001 in honor of William H. Johnson, an American artist known primarily for his Scandinavian landscapes and his witty and poignant depictions of African American daily life. The Foundation created the William H. Johnson Prize to recognize African American artists who often need economic assistance and support. The Prize is awarded each year to an early-career African-American artist working in the areas of painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation, and/or new genres. The Foundation defines “early career” to include artists who have finished their academic work within 12 years from the year the prize is awarded. The application, instructions and some additional information can be found on the Web site.
