Winners of the biennial Prize embody outstanding artistic achievement that inspires innovative thinking, fresh perspectives, and greater understanding and appreciation of the arts. The winner is selected from a long list of candidates nominated by the Roy R. Neuberger Prize Advisory Panel, consisting of the museum’s director and curators, and various faculty at Purchase College. Prior prizewinners are Yto Barrada, Tania Bruguera, Leandro Erlich, Robin Rhode, and Dana Schutz.

In addition to a $25,000 honorarium, winners have the opportunity to work with the Museum on a special exhibition and accompanying catalogue. The Spring 2022 exhibition will be curated by guest curator Helaine Posner, former Chief Curator at the Neuberger Museum.

This biennial Prize reflects the historical mission of Roy R. Neuberger, the Museum’s founding patron, who had a lifelong commitment to support the work of living artists. The Prize was originally funded by Roy R. Neuberger and first made public in November, 2008, at a celebration of Mr. Neuberger’s 105th birthday. Mr. Neuberger’s son, Jim Neuberger, and his wife Helen Stambler Neuberger, who are actively involved with the museum and serve on the Board of the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art, carry on that legacy today.
