Artadia currently has programs and awards in Houston, San Francisco and Chicago.
From the press release:
Lyda Kuth, Director of the LEF Foundation explains, "a program like Artadia not only recognizes talent but connects that talent to a national network of support -- providing a sense of optimism and possibility for visual artists living and working in Boston. We are very pleased to fund a program so close in spirit to LEF's core values, which is to ensure support for the creation of new work and to raise the visibility of artists."
