The Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts announces Lisa Krannichfeld, of Little Rock, as the Artist Award recipient for 2024.

The purpose of the award is to assist an accomplished woman artist to realize her vision and help to make her achievements more visible to the art community and the public. “Most art students today are women and 90 percent of museum purchases are art by men,” said ACNMWA President MaryRoss Taylor. “We know women earn less and have myriad obligations, so our award has no conditions attached. We aim to help an established woman artist move to the next level.”
