American Princess Grace Foundation announces 2018 Awards

American Princess Grace Foundation announces 2018 Awards

By Staff Writer - July 29, 2018

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA (PGF-USA) has announced the winners of the 2018 Princess Grace Awards. The Awards will be presented at the annual Princess Grace Awards Gala and continue the legacy of Princess Grace of Monaco, who helped emerging artists pursue their artistic goals during Her lifetime.

In total, the Foundation is awarding over $1 million to artists in theatre, dance, and film. In the presence of Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco, this year’s Gala will be held at Cipriani 25 Broadway on October 16, 2018.

The evening will be co-chaired by Dennis and Phyllis Washington and Anne Sweeney and Phillip Miller.

For the tenth year in a row, celebrated artist Alex Soldier, known for his mastery of precious miniatures, has created an objet d’art to represent the Princess Grace Awards.  The Award, realised as a wearable pin, symbolically combines the three art forms lauded by the Foundation: theatre, dance, and film by using precious metals and Swarovski crystal accents.

This year, Sam Gold, Tony Award winning director for Fun Home and Kyle Abraham, Bessie Award winner and founder of the dance company Abraham.In.Motion (A.I.M) will each receive Princess Grace Statue Awards. In addition to a $25,000 unrestricted cash gift, Kyle and Sam will be presented with a bronze statue of Princess Grace created by the Dutch artist Kees Verkade. To date, sixty-six artists have received this Award.

Toby E. Boshak, Executive Director of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA shared, “It is our pleasure to announce the 2018 Princess Grace Award winners, who represent some of the nation’s most outstanding emerging performing artists. We look forward to following these artists’ careers and continuing to help them throughout their artistic journeys.

This year’s Princess Grace Statue Award recipients, choreographer Kyle Abraham and director Sam Gold have excelled in their crafts, creating groundbreaking work and enriching the artistic landscape for the 21st century. Kyle and Sam epitomise the artistic excellence for which this Award stands and serve as incredible role models for this next generation of Princess Grace Award winners.”

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA is a non-profit, publicly-supported foundation, headquartered in New York City and founded 36 years ago by Prince Rainier III of Monaco to honour his wife, Princess Grace’s legacy.

The Foundation’s mission is to identify and assist emerging talent in theatre, dance, and film by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships. Since its inception the Foundation has given awards to nearly 800 recipients.
