The prize, endowed to permit a cash award, is given annually to the creator of a specific work— a book, essay, musical composition, play, painting, sculpture, architectural design, film or choreographic work — completed between January 2009 and July 2010 that best captures the spirit and energy of New York City. The award is not intended to honor a lifetime achievement. Please submit nominations to MAS by July 9. Past Brendan Gill Prize recipients have included: artists Mike and Doug Starn for their site specific installation See it split, see it change; musician Sufjan Stevens for his musical The BQE, actress Sarah Jones for her play Bridge & Tunnel, and artists Jeanne-Claude and Christo for their temporary Central Park art installation The Gates.
