Grant DetailJohnson Prize
William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts
The Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African-American artist in the areas of painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation, and/or a new genre. For award purposes, "early career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within the last dozen years. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as an artist for more than twelve years.
