Join us for the award announcement and ceremony for Envision: The Michigan Artist Initiative 2023 at Stamps Gallery.
The exhibition features new work by the three Envision 2023 finalists, artists Bakpak Durden, Parisa Ghaderi, and Levon Kafafian, as selected by a prominent national panel of jurors: Neil A. Barclay, President and CEO of Charles Wright Museum of African American Art; Shannon Rae Stratton, Executive Director of Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency; and Nayda Collazo-Llorens, artist and winner of the inaugural Envision: Michigan Artist Initiative Award. After deliberations, the jury will select a winner, who will be announced at the event. The winning artist will be awarded a $5,000 cash prize.
All the artists and jurors will be in attendance. Additional event speakers TBA. Following the award ceremony there will be a reception with light refreshments and live music. We look forward to seeing you there!
