Event Description

The Francis J. Greenburger Award is an unrestricted $10,000 prize that honors established artists whom the art world knows to be of extraordinary merit but who have not been fully recognized by the public. For each cycle of the award, Francis J. Greenburger invites a renowned artist, gallerist, writer, museum professional and collector to each select one recipient whom they believe to fulfill the mission of the award. The awards, totaling $50,000, are presented at a ceremony in New York City.

The award was most recently presented in a ceremony at the New Museum on March 12, 2013. The distinguished group of artists and presenters included: Bruce Porter, selected by artist Frank Stella, Peter Saul, selected by gallerist Mary Boone, Jonas Mekas, selected by writer, artist, and publisher Phong Bui, Richard Nonas, selected by MASS MoCA Director Joe Thompson and Elaine Reichek, selected by collector and patron Melva Bucksbaum.

Francis J. Greenburger, Founder of Omi International Arts Center and Chairman of Time Equities, Inc. said about the 2013 awards, "This year's list of winners is extraordinary and offers a diverse look into what is going on in the contemporary art world today. We started these awards almost 30 years ago and have been inspired to continue them over the years to help today's new generation of gifted artists fuel their creativity and gain the recognition they deserve."

The awards were founded in 1986 after a conversation Mr. Greenburger had with his friends, André Emmerich and Clement Greenburg, during which André said, "The best and brightest artist of each generation are known, but not to everyone. Ask the inner circle and they can tell you." This statement is the inspiration and founding principle of the Francis J. Greenburger Awards.

Since 1986, 45 artists have been awarded the Francis J. Greenburger Award.
