APG/Museum Purchase Award
One artist will be selected, from those chosen by the juror for the exhibition, to receive the 2022 APG/ Museum Purchase Award of $2500. Each year, a museum curator reviews the exhibition and selects works from one artist for the Museum’s permanent collection. APG purchases the work and donates the pieces to the museum. The Portfolio 2022 purchase award is slated for the High Museum of Art.
High Museum of Art
The High Museum of Art is home to the most significant photography program in the American Southeast. The Museum began acquiring photographs in the early 1970s, making it one of the earliest American art museums to commit to collecting the medium. Head Curator, Gregory Harris oversees the photography department, including related exhibitions and programs, as well as its collection of more than 7,000 works spanning the 1840s to the present. With strengths in American modernist and documentary traditions from the mid-20th century and a robust commitment to contemporary practice, the photography collection features a strong base of pictures related to the American South, which are situated within a global context that is both regionally relevant and internationally significant.
