The Bennett Prize is a stipend/grant-in-aid program established by American art collectors Steven Alan Bennett and Dr. Elaine Melotti Schmidt, to support the fine art practice of a woman painter working in figurative realism. The Bennett Prize, administered by the Pittsburgh Foundation, is awarded biennially, and provides $25,000 annually over two consecutive years to the winning artist. Ten (10) finalists will each receive $1,000 to participate in a traveling exhibition organized by the Muskegon Museum of Art (MMA), and the winner will be showcased in a solo exhibition at the close of her grant. The opening exhibition will be held from May 2 to September 8, 2019 at the Muskegon Museum of Art.
