All our artists have already won simply by jurying in to this prestigious Festival, but each year we go one step farther and award four exhibiting artists a Special Recognition Award. The award comes with a $500 check and automatic entry into next year's Festival.
The award winners are selected by a panel of three highly qualified judges, each of whom rates each artist independently and then gathers for a spirited discussion. The four awards are presented at a charming artists' reception on the first night of the Festival.
This year the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival is pleased to designate the Special Presentation Grove for an exhibition entitled Art for a Better World showcasing the work of neurologically diverse contemporary artists from around the Bay Area.
