Applications are being accepted for the 2021 Jorge and Darlene Pérez Prize in Public Art & Civic Design, a first-of-its-kind national program supported by The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation. The program seeks to celebrate and highlight the work of individuals who support, develop, and manage the incorporation of art into the design of places and spaces across the United States.
The 2021 Pérez Prize in Public Art & Civic Design will recognize an arts administrator with a track record of exemplary work in producing with intention to advance community, civic, or social good by implementing art-based processes and/or projects that lead to positive change in the built environment of a local community.
The deadline to apply is Monday, March 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Americans for the Arts will award the recipient of the 2021 Pérez Prize in Public Art & Civic Design with a grant package worth upwards of $50,000. The award will include a cash stipend and additional financial support covering continued learning opportunities, as well as dialogue and discussion about their work with national leaders in the arts and other allied fields. The winner will be announced in June with the Americans for the Arts Annual Convention.
