Since its inception in 2001, S&R Evermay has supported the work of 80 artists through the Washington Award. In a renewed commitment to supporting the artistic community of Washington D.C., the Washington Award is eligible to D.C. residents who prioritize social impact in their practice, working in the fields of visual art, music, dance, or interdisciplinary practice.

The annual Washington Award is comprised of four unrestricted grants of $15,000, providing support to artists at critical moments in their careers to freely develop and pursue their creative ideas.

This prize will be awarded to one artist in each of the following disciplines:

  • Dance (Performance and Choreography)
  • Music (Performance or Composition)
  • Visual Art (Studio-Based or Community Based)
  • Interdisciplinary Practice
