Griffin Award

The Griffin Award is designed to support the acquisition or commission of an important work in a craft medium.  The work acquired should play a major role in the museum’s existing collection, and applications are encouraged for work in all applied arts media including, but not limited to: ceramics, glass, metal, jewellery, textile, wood and lettering. 

Contemporary Art Society Museum Members are invited to apply with a proposal to acquire work they consider will have a significant impact on their collections. Both UK and international artists/practitioners will be considered.  

Deadline for applications: 3 May 2024, 10:00 am
