The Ordway Prize, created in 2005, is awarded every other year to two recipients, one artist and one curator/arts writer who have had significant impact on the field of contemporary art. Since 2008, the prize has been administered by the New Museum in New York in conjunction with Creative Link for the Arts. It carries with it an unrestricted cash award of $100,000. The nominees are between the ages of forty and sixty-five, and must have a developed body of work extending over a minimum of fifteen years. The winners are chosen by a jury composed of arts professionals.[1]
