Boardwalk Prize Fund


Be a part of this legendary event by contributing to the artist prize fund. More than $30,000 in cash prize awards are distributed to artists and they show our appreciation for their hard work. The awards also attract a new crop of high-caliber artists each year, which keeps the show fresh and exciting!

Your donation will be acknowledged in the official show program; donors at the $250 level or higher are invited to enjoy Friday VIP Club access and the Artist and Awards Ceremony where you can announce your award, meet the artists and congratulate the winners in person.

The Boardwalk Art Show has been produced by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (a 501 c-3 non-profit) since 1952. It ranks in the top 50 fine art art shows in the country  by industry publication Sunshine Artist Magazine.

To contribute to the Boardwalk Art Show Prize Fund, please contact Jennifer Golden at 757-425-0000 x320.
