The Houston Art Alliance has announced the Liz Alexander Visual Art Award, honoring the memory of Liz Alexander, a longtime HAA staffer who died suddenly in April 2010. The award, a minimum of $1,000 funded by contributions from Alexander’s former colleagues at HAA and other private donations, will go to an emerging visual artist living in Houston, and may be used for projects, professional development or, unusually, education! Application guidelines are online, and the winner will be announced later this year.
