“Art is a journey.” Most of the time, that’s only a metaphor. Now, BMW has created a program to help artists literally make a journey out of their creative process.
Sometimes, creating art involves a lot more than merely sitting in a studio. You need contacts. You need to do research. You need new perspectives. The Art Journey Award will “support emerging artists by enabling them to go on their own journey of creative discovery,” according to DesignBoom.
BMW is not alone. Art Basel, an organization that stages some of the biggest and most exciting contemporary art shows around the world, will also be helping. Award recipients will be drawn from those exhibiting as “emerging artists” at the Art Basel shows in Miami Beach and Hong Kong, one from each show every year. An expert jury for each show will choose the winning artist.
We here at JMK BMW are looking forward to seeing the results from BMW’s Art Journey award program!
