The Clark Prize
The Clark Prize for Excellence in Arts Writing celebrates informed, insightful, and accessible prose that advances the public understanding and appreciation of the visual arts. Recipients of the Clark Prize are distinguished for critical or historical writing that conveys complex ideas in a manner that is grounded in scholarship yet appealing to a diverse range of audiences.
The Clark Prize comes with a $25,000 honorarium and an award designed by architect Tadao Ando. The Clark Prize is presented through generous support provided by the Beinecke family through the Prospect Hill Foundation.
