The Nancy Graves Foundation’s annual grants for visual artists, which include an unrestricted $5,000 prize, have been awarded this year to Sam Contis and Myeongsoo Kim, according to a report by Maximilíano Durón in Artnews.

The foundation, which was established in 1996 after Nancy Graves’s death, has awarded grants to artists since 2001. Sam Contis, who lives and works in Oakland, California, currently has a solo show of her photography at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery in New York. Brooklyn-based artist Myeongsoo Kim concentrates on sculptural installations with a range of found and fabricated objects.
