The Helen Frankenthaler Award for Painting

The Helen Frankenthaler Award for Painting is administered by a confidential nomination and selection process. Applications and unsolicited nominations are not accepted.

This annual grant is supported by a multi-year gift from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation in memory of the artist, who was an early contributor to FCA. The $40,000 award is made annually through Grants to Artists to an individual demonstrating Helen Frankenthaler’s passion for innovation and experimentation in painting. The inaugural award will be made to New York-based artist Kerstin Brätsch in January 2020.
