Prize Prints: The Queen Sonja Print Award

Through Saturday, August 1, 2015
Free admission | #PrizePrints

Prize Prints celebrates The Queen Sonja Print Award, a biennial prize established to encourage young artists working in the graphic arts. The exhibition features recent work by the 2012 and 2014 prize winners, Tiina Kivinen (Finland) and Svend-Allan Sørensen (Denmark), as well as a selection of works by the prize's founders, printmakers H.M. Queen Sonja of Norway, Kjell Nupen, and Ørnulf Opdahl. The exhibition also recognizes the exciting international collaboration between the print shops Ateljé Larsen (Helsingborg, Sweden) and Universal Limited Art Editions (Long Island, NY).

Prize Prints is organized by Sune Nordgren, Project Leader for The Queen Sonja Print Award, and The American-Scandinavian Foundation. The exhibition is made possible by grants from The Bergesen Foundation, DNB Bank ASA, Trond S. Jensen, and Bård and Barbara Bunaes. Additional support has been received from The Bonnier Family Fund for Contemporary Art, The F. Donald Kenney Fund for the Visual Arts, and The Asbjørn Lunde Fund in Memory of Karl and Elisa Lunde. Funding for travel by Tiina Kivinen has been provided by Arts Promotion Centre Finland. Transportation support has been provided by SAS Scandinavian Airlines. Public programming has been supported in part by a grant from the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in New York.
