The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) has recently announced the ninth edition of the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize. The prize will award a $25,000 fellowship to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in the Baltimore region.

Of the 39 semi-finalists selected, three of the artists are MFAST alumnae. Congratulations to Cara Ober (MFAST ’05), Elena Volkova (MFAST ’07), and Leah Cooper (MFAST ’09).

An exhibition of the semi-finalists’ work will be shown in the Decker, Meyerhoff and Pinkard galleries of MICA during the Artscape weekend (July 18-20, 2014). Approximately six finalists will be selected for the final review for the prize. Their work will be exhibited in the Special Exhibition Gallery at The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD.
