  • Established by the High Museum of Art in 2005, the David C. Driskell Prize is the first national award to honor and celebrate contributions to the field of art of the African Diaspora. Named after the renowned African American artist and art scholar, the
    prize recognizes a US-based scholar or artist in the beginning or middle of his or her career whose artistic practice or scholarly
    work makes an original and important contribution to the visual arts and study of art of the African Diaspora. A cash award of
    $25,000 accompanies the prize.
