The Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme
With a prize amount of $ 100,000, the Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme is the largest of its kind in Norway and among the most significant art award programmes internationally.
The Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme is the result of a partnership between the Arne Wilhelmsen family and the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter and marks the continuation of a long-lasting friendship and engagement in the arts.
Whilst the Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme will be international, it will remain rooted in Norway. It will include the prize and corresponding exhibition at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, accompanied by a catalogue, audience engagement programmes and an acquisition budget allowing for the award winner’s work to be included in the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter’s collection.
