CADD x Maddrey Artist Prize in Dallas

The Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas (CADD) and Maddrey have announced that they are now accepting applications for the second annual CADD x Maddrey Artist Prize. Open to all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color) artists working or living in either Dallas or Dallas County, the award is designed to, per the Prize, “champion historically underserved and underrepresented groups of the Dallas arts community by offering quantifiable support.”

As such, the Prize’s winner will receive $5,000 in cash, a 2022 solo exhibition of their work, and a Legal Mentorship Package courtesy of Thomas Maddrey, which is valued at over $4,500.

Jurors for this edition of the award include Vivian Li, the Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art; Christopher Blay, who is an artist, writer, and Chief Curator at the Houston Museum of African American Culture (and former Glasstire News Editor); and Angel Cabrales, who is an artist and professor living and working in El Paso.
