Since its inception in 2001, S&R Evermay Foundation has supported the work of 80 artists through the Washington Award. In a renewed commitment to supporting the artistic community of Washington DC, the Washington Award is eligible to DC-resident artists who prioritize social impact in their practice, working in the fields of visual art, interdisciplinary, music, or dance.
The annual Washington Award comprises of two prize categories. The Cash Prize awards four unrestricted grants of $15,000 in each artistic category, providing support to artists at critical moments in their careers to freely develop and pursue their creative ideas. The Fillmore Studios Prize provides twelve months of free studio space usage at The Fillmore School in Georgetown. The Fillmore Studios Prize is available to multiple DC-based artists from August‒July each year. In addition to studio space, artists are provided with opportunities to exhibit, hold open studios, and mentor students.
