The Gibbes Museum of Art has awarded fifteen artists with the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art. Supported by the museum's dynamic young professionals' auxiliary group, Society 1858, the Prize recognizes artists whose work contributes to a new understanding of art in the South. This exhibition celebrates winners and finalists of what has become one of the South's most prestigious art prizes since its inaugural award in 2008. 

Each of the artists recognized by the Prize has continued to garner accolades regionally, nationally, and internationally. Their successes demonstrate the importance of creating platforms that recognize and support the significant art and artists of the South.  We are excited to celebrate these artists’ works and stories in a special exhibition.
