Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue has announced the recipients of their Artadia Awards 2013 San Francisco. The winners were chosen during 45 minute studio visits with 10 short-listed artists conducted by a three-person panel of curators. The finalists were chosen from about 430 applicants that live and work in the Bay Area.
The award is offered at two levels, $15,000 and $3,000. The two recipients of the $15,000 level are Lucy Raven and D-L Alvarez. The recipients at the $3,000 level are Alicia McCarthy and Liam Everett. Work by the 10 finalists is also included in a show at the Stephen Wirtz Gallery, which went on view Feb. 12.
