Cherry TArts has heard that big news is coming soon from the folks who administer the inaugural Jack Wolgin International Competition in the Arts, a.k.a. the Wolgin Prize. The Wolgin Prize was created last year when Philadelphia developer, philanthropist and art collector Jack Wolgin donated $3.7 million to Temple’s Tyler School of Art to create one of the world’s largest annual art prizes for individual fine artists. Wolgin Prize winners will win $150,000, and their work will be displayed this fall at Tyler’s stunning Temple Gallery space in the school’s new home on Temple’s Main Campus. The news we’re expecting: finalists! Stay tuned.
