In commemoration of the one-year anniversary of Liz Alexander’s passing, Houston Arts Alliance announces the inauguration of the Liz Alexander Visual Art Award, to be made possible by contributions from her former colleagues, friends and family. Currently to date, HAA has raised over $2,000 which is made possible by private contributions (the final award size will be announced by late summer 2011).
The Liz Alexander Visual Art Award will be presented to an emerging, visual artist residing in Houston between the ages of 20 – 35 years. Award money may be used for a specific artistic project, for professional development or education in the field of visual or media arts. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. HAA is still accepting applications.
Deadline: July 8, 2011.
