Administered by the Seattle Art Museum, the annual Betty Bowen Award honors a Northwest artist for their original, exceptional, and compelling work. The winner is awarded an unrestricted cash prize of $15,000, and a selection of their work will be shown at the Seattle Art Museum in the spring of 2022. In addition, up to two Special Recognition Awards in the amount of $2,500 are often granted at the discretion of the Betty Bowen Committee. Due to the financial hardships many creatives continue to face due to COVID-19, this year the Committee is extending the awards for the second time to include three more opportunities at $1,250 each.
