Prilla Smith Brackett Award

Prilla Smith Brackett Award
Deadline: April 8

The biennial Prilla Smith Brackett Award honors an outstanding woman visual artist based in the Greater Boston area and is intended to draw attention to her exceptional contributions to the field and region. Funded by Prilla Smith Brackett (Wellesley Class of 1964) and administered by the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, the Brackett Award will be given to the artist whose work and exhibition record demonstrate extraordinary artistic vision, talent, and skill.

Recipients receive a $15,000 cash award to be used at the artist’s discretion, including to assist in career advancement through support for travel, research, early project development, project completion, studio costs, catalogue production, etc.

The Brackett Award will be widely publicized, and selections from the awardee’s portfolio will be featured on the Davis Museum’s website. The awardee will be expected to offer a public talk on her work, hosted at the Davis Museum, and to serve as a juror for the next subsequent Brackett Award.
