"This is the inaugural year of the $25,000 award, now the largest grant available to individual artists in Washington State. Supported by The Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation, the Arts Innovator Award is given annually to two Washington State artists, working in any discipline, who demonstrate innovation in their art practice by originating new work, experimenting with new ideas, taking risks, and pushing the boundaries in their respective fields."
