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, 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 School Studio Prize provides one year of free studio space usage at The Fillmore School in Georgetown for multiple artists. In addition to studio space, artists are provided with opportunities to exhibit, hold open studios, and mentor students.
