Bay Area artists Simone Bailey, Sadie Barnette, Sofía Córdova, Carrie Hott, and Davina Semo have been named finalists for Artadia’s 2017 San Francisco Awards. After another round of judging, two of them will receive $10,000 from the organization.
The jury picking the finalists was made up of Dena Beard, director of the Lab in San Francisco; Sally Frater, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University in Kansas; and artist Andrew Kuo.
This is the tenth time Artadia has offered a San Francisco award. The national nonprofit has presented more $3 million in awards to artists in cities across the country.
