Award presentation 2014
Giulia Zini 1st award winner of euward 2014
On Saturday, November 22nd, the Augustinum Stiftung presented the winners of the sixth euward, the European art award for painting and graphic arts by artists with mental disabilities. Up to March 1st, 2015, the euward exhibition shows about 180 artworks by the winners and all the other nominated artists in the Buchheim Museum, Bernried.
The Augustinum Stiftung (Munich) has presented euward since 2000 to offer mentally handicapped artists a professional forum for their current creative work. As an art award with an international outlook, the euward's aim is to acknowledge the artistic quality of the work of these largely unknown outsiders. The prizewinners are rewarded with cash prizes and a printed catalogue, totalling EUR 19,000 in value.
