In 2007 Artists' Legacy Foundation created the Artist Award to recognize and honor accomplishments of an outstanding visual artist whose primary medium is painting or sculpture. Each year ten artists, either painters or sculptors, are proposed for the ALF Artist Award by five anonymous nominators selected by the board. The nominators and the jurors are art world peers chosen for their expertise. A jury of three peers makes the final selection. The award is $25,000, and there are no restrictions on the use of funds by the recipient. We invite you to learn more about our award recipients here.
