SAN DIEGO ART PRIZE ANNOUNCES 2009 RECIPIENTS

Kim MacConnel with emerging artist Brian Dick
William Allen Morris with emerging artist Tom Driscoll

The SD ART PRIZE is dedicated to the idea that the visual arts are a necessary and rewarding ingredient of any world-class city and a building block of the lifestyle of its residents. Conceived to promote and encourage dialogue, reflection and social interaction about San Diego’s artistic and cultural life, this annual award honors artistic expression. The SD ART PRIZE, a cash prize with exhibition opportunities, spotlights established San Diego artists paired with emerging artists each season whose outstanding achievements in the field of Visual Arts merit the recognition. Over the course of the year, a series of exhibits featuring the recipients will run simultaneously at the L Street Gallery at the Omni Hotel, and on the websites: http://SanDiegoArtist.com and http://SDVisualArts.net (SDVAN).
