This competitive award pays tribute to Marian Locks’ pioneering spirit, her vision and her commitment to contemporary artists. The winner of the Marian Locks Award will be selected based on their outstanding potential to benefit from an opportunity to explore career possibilities, which may include purposeful travel.
Fellowships, Prizes, and Awards are conferred on the basis of merit alone. The selection processes may include initial screenings by departmental faculty or internal committees. The winners are chosen by outside jurors, who are regional experts in their fields. All of these opportunities are designed to help women and non-binary artists bridge the gap between the world of education and the world of work.
