Contemporary art enthusiasts Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman of the Manhattan-based FLAG Art Foundation have joined with Contemporary Austin trustee Suzanne Deal Booth to create a new art prize. “It seemed like a natural next step,” Mr. Fuhrman told the New York Times, “a way to learn about artists we may not even be familiar with.”

The prize includes a $200,000 cash award, a catalog and a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Austin and at FLAG. The recipient will be announced in July. Deal Booth and the Fuhrmans have committed to jointly fund four prizes biennially through 2026.
