The John Ruskin Prize 2017 Shortlist announced Read Press Release.
Call for entries now closed. Many thanks to the 1000+ artists, makers, designers and innovators who entered this year's Prize celebrating artist as polymath.
Last year’s theme: Hand & Eye: Master of All Trades in The Age of Jack referred to the Artist as Polymath. Open to a range of interpretations and approaches, the theme aimed to lend itself to responses from artists and makers whose work celebrates the opportunity to marry diverse materials and disciplines.
In celebration of ‘Artist as Polymath’, 2017 marked the first year that The Prize was open to makers and craftspeople, as well as fine artists. Alongside Ruskin’s own career as a polymath, the theme has been jointly inspired by The Year of Making in Sheffield, which took place throughout 2016, and The Big Draw’s year of STEAM Power, which celebrates the interconnections between Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths
The selection panel will announced the 1st Prize, 2nd Prize and Student Prize Winners with a total prize fund of £5,000 at the Private View of the shortlist exhibition on 20th June 2017.
