The Museum of Arts and Design’s Burke Prize is a contemporary art prize for a new generation of artists working in a world of expanded media with a foundation in glass, fiber, clay, metal, or wood. Established in 2018, the Burke Prize honors exceptional artists age 45 or under working in the United States whose highly accomplished work is conceptually rigorous, relevant, and pushes the boundaries of materials and creative processes.
Selected by a diverse and distinguished jury of curators, artists, and scholars through an open-call application process, the Burke Prize winner receives an unrestricted award of $50,000 and a major exhibition with a select group of finalists at the Museum of Arts and Design.
One 2021 Burke Prize artist will also be selected for the biannual Burke Residency at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. The Burke Residency artist will receive a one-month to five-week residency with all the benefits and opportunities awarded to artists selected for The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program.
All applications are due by Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST.
