The Andy Prize www.theandy.org.il/en/
The Andrea M. Bronfman Prize for the Arts ("The Andy") was initiated in June 2005 by Charles Bronfman to honor his wife Andy's passion for and support of the arts, and to create a showcase for Israeli decorative artists. The Andy Prize is awarded annually to an Israeli decorative artist for excellence in ceramics, jewelry, textile, or glass.
Launching the prize less than a year before Andy’s untimely death at the age of 60, Charles Bronfman continues his and Andy's support of artists in Israel as an extension of his broader philanthropic mission.
The winner of The Andy will receive NIS 50,000. The artist's works will be exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and a catalogue of the exhibit will be published. Two works of the artist will be bought and gifted to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
According to Charles Bronfman, “The Andy is about excellence. By recognizing excellence, not only will Israeli decorative artists understand that their craftsmanship is on a par with the best in the world, but the international arts community will recognize it as well.”
