George Nick Prize

The purpose of the George Nick Prize is to encourage emerging artists; who, through observational capabilities, skill in drawing, and understanding of the role of tone and color, create two-dimensional works that can be recognized in terms of content and emphasizing form(s) of realism.

This Prize will be awarded on the basis of merit, upon the discretion of the jury. The Prize is restricted to works done in drawing, painting, and printmaking by all majors in their junior or senior undergraduate years or Masters of Fine Arts candidates (first and second years) at MassArt. Former George Nick Prize winners are ineligible to apply.
