New European award for art museums and galleries

The European Museum Academy announces the Art Museum Award, a new annual award specifically designed for art museums and galleries throughout Europe. The Art Museum Award is dedicated to honour and highlight museum projects that work with art in an innovative, pioneering and creative way in order to address or respond to current social issues that are a major challenge to our contemporary society. With this new award, the European Museum Academy aims to identify new role models of excellence that could function as inspiring paragons of the social role and relevance of art museums and galleries. The first museum or gallery to be awarded will be in 2021. This is the only award of its kind on a European level.
