The MMA is excited to announce the return of The Bennett Prize this summer with Rising Voices 3 from May 18 – September 10!

The Bennett Prize is a juried art exhibition with the goal to propel the careers of women figurative realist painters. Historically, women artists have been underrepresented in museums, galleries, and collections around the world. The Bennett Prize aims to be a platform of recognition and empowerment for women artists to take their place among the most celebrated painters, often men, dominating the art world today.

The winner of The Bennett Prize will receive $50,000 and a solo traveling exhibition. The runner up will receive a $10,000 prize. The winner and runner up will be announced at the Opening Reception on Thursday, May 18.

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, May 18 | 5 PM
