The Janet and Walter Sondheim Prize was set to announce semi-finalists on April 17th, 2007. However the date has been pushed back. Gary Kachadourian, Visual Arts and Arts & Humanities Grants Coordinator for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, circulated an email today saying:
"We had listed today, April 17, as the date for announcement of the semi-finalists for the Sondheim Prize. We do not have that information ready yet but will let you know by email as soon as we are able to. We are hoping this will be in the next few days but may take a little longer. I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience."
"The Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts recently announced that the $25,000 Janet and Walter Sondheim Prize would be awarded again at Artscape 2007. The award, given to an artist living in Maryland, Washington, Northern Virginia, or Southeastern Pennsylvania, debuted last year to commemorate Artscape's 25th anniversary and was awarded to Baltimore artist Laure Drogoul (Art, July 19, 2006). This second year is the next step in making the award an annual gift."- Baltimore City Paper
