Galerie Lelong & Co., New York, is pleased to announce that Michelle Stuart will receive the 2022 Francis J. Greenburger Award by Art Omi.
Since 1986, Art Omi has awarded this prestigious prize to 60 artists. The five artists who will receive the award include: Luis Camnitzer, Anita Fields, Jessica Rankin, Faith Ringgold, and Michelle Stuart. The Francis J. Greenburger Award is an unrestricted $12,500 prize that honors established artists whom the art world knows to be of extraordinary merit but who have not been fully recognized by the public.
The 2022 awards will be presented at the New Museum on Wednesday, October 12, from 6 to 8 PM. The ceremony is free and open to the public with RSVP required.
“It is a privilege to recognize these extraordinary artists, who for one reason or another have not been fully appreciated by the world at large,” stated Francis Greenburger, founder of Art Omi and Chairman & CEO of the prominent NYC real estate firm Time Equities, Inc. “In establishing these awards, we created a platform that brings together members of the art world and the public, to properly declare our support and admiration for these artists’ contributions.”
Francis J. Greenburger established the awards in 1986 after a conversation with his friends, André Emmerich and Clement Greenberg, during which André said, “The best and brightest artist of each generation are known, but not to everyone. Ask the inner circle and they can tell you.” This statement is the founding principle of the Francis J. Greenburger Awards. Mr. Greenburger has invited a renowned artist, gallerist, writer, museum professional, and collector to each select one recipient whom they believe to fulfill the mission of the award. This year’s distinguished group of artists are presented by Ariel Aisiks, Julie Mehretu, Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Seph Rodney, and Mary Sabbatino.
