Richmond Magazine (not to be confused with… us) has a pretty great series of awards available to local artists and if you know any, you should head over to their survey site and nominate them.
Here’s some more details about the Theresa Pollak Prize via Richmond Mag’s Harry Kollatz Jr.:
The awards are named for Theresa Pollak (1899-2002), a native Richmonder, who is the only known Virginia artist to have lived in three centuries. Her greatest contributions to the region are founding the art schools at both Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond. Among her generations of students at VCU, a number of them became artists and educators who’ve gone on to influence countless others. She nudged our city’s history toward the pursuit of the artistic, and over time, that endeavor has become one of the Richmond region’s major components.
Awards are available in the categories of Applied Arts, Emerging Artist, Photography, Film, Dance and Lifetime Achievement.
Nominations must be received by July 15. To vote, go to richmondmag.com/pollaks2015.
