West Collection Award
Since launching the open call for ONWARD ‘11, we have been working hard to provide the selected artists with more opportunities to share their work. We are delighted to share the news that The West Collection has agreed to offer a purchase award of up to $1000 to one of the ONWARD ‘11 photographers. The West Collection Onward Purchase Award will come in the form of a purchase of one piece from the ONWARD ‘11 exhibition to enter The West Collection.
This is an excellent opportunity to join one of the premier contemporary art collections in America. For artists looking to broaden their horizons and bolster their careers, this opportunity is unparalleled. The West Collection’s focus on developing relationships with young artists whose work is both challenging and inventive has made them one of the most respected art collections out there.
Curator Page West has been making use of her keen eye since the mid-90’s by procuring work from the brightest young artists for the collection, which is largely on display at SEI Investments in Oaks, Pennsylvania. The West Collection is dedicated to lending their holdings to museums and galleries, ensuring that their collection is shared with the public. They also host monthly artist visits and discussions related to the collection.
This is a unique chance for a deserving photographer from Onward ‘11 to have a piece become a part of a prestigious and well-regarded collection. We look forward to our partnership with The West Collection and hope you will participate in ONWARD ‘11 to take advantage of this exciting opportunity.
