PRO ARTE

PRO ARTE – SUPPORT FOR YOUNG ART

The Didrichsen Pro Arte award was established in 2003 with the purpose of supporting young, promising artists. It continues the tradition of supporting contemporary artists, which was characteristic for the museum founders Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen.

The award is issued every few years. In addition to the award the artist chosen receives a stipend, a possibility to display his or her works at the Didrichsen museum with an adjoining catalogue produced by the museum. The museum also purchases a work from the artist´s exhibition.

The jury nominates the artists and makes the final choice of the award receiver.

FOUR PRO ARTE ARTISTS SO FAR

The award has been presented to graphic artist Sari Bremer (1976–) in 2003, sculptor Kim Simonsson (1974–) in 2009, visual artist Tamara Piilola (1977–) in 2016 and visual artist Karoliina Hellberg (1987–) in 2019.
