APG / High Museum of Art Purchase Award Winners

Each year our annual Portfolio exhibition features 6-8 series chosen from submissions by a nationally recognized curator. The High Museum of Art has the opportunity to select multiple pieces for its own collection and the winning artist receives from APG an award of $2500. This award was crowd-funded in 2016, but for 2017-18, the award will be jointly funded by Ted & Gloria Maloof and Edwin Robinson, who began the program in 2013.
