Brooklyn Museum Launches New Award for Emerging Artists

The Brooklyn Museum has announced that it is partnering with UOVO, the New York–based fine art storage company, to establish a new $25,000 award in support of emerging artists who live or work in Brooklyn, New York. Recipients of the UOVO Prize will also be awarded a solo exhibition at the museum and will be invited to present a public installation on the facade of UOVO’s forthcoming facility in the borough’s Bushwick neighborhood. The inaugural winner will be announced in June and will be chosen by the museum’s curators.

“The Brooklyn Museum is excited to join UOVO in this effort to highlight and nurture the vibrant cultural producers of Brooklyn,” said Brooklyn Museum director Anne Pasternak. “We’re proud to share this borough with countless emerging artists, and are always looking for opportunities to support their work in a multitude of ways.”

UOVO chairman and founder Steven Guttman added: “As we prepare to open UOVO:BROOKLYN, we want to celebrate the artists and institutions in this dynamic borough. We hope the opportunity for a solo museum exhibition, combined with a public installation and direct cash award, will have significant impact on the winning artist’s career.”
