2013 Murano Prize
The Abate Zanetti Glass School, in collaboration with the Association for the Study and Development of the Culture of Murano (Associazione per lo studio e lo sviluppo della cultura muranese) is promoting also this year the new edition of Murano Prize, historic Venetian event that awards Murano glass art.
The scope of the prize is to enhance and promote once again the artistic tradition of Murano glass with the aim to bring together contemporary art and Murano glassmakers.
The initiative involves national and international designers, Murano glass masters and of course the precious participation of all the Murano schools with the specific contest Murano Junior Prize.
The competition will take place in four phases:
Phase 1: the artists present anonymously graphic illustrations of the works to be reproduced in glass;
Phase 2: The Panel of Judges selects a maximum of 30 works to be reproduced in glass;
Phase 3: the Murano glassmakers choose from the selected works those they intend to make in glass;
Phase 4: the Panel of Judges assigns the prizes to the artists and glassmakers.
The artists must submit their artwork, at their own expense and risk, by 18.00 on 18 April 2013 to "Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti, Calle Briati 8/B, 30141 Murano – Venezia, Italy", marked "PREMIO MURANO 2013"
All projects and works will be presented in an exhibition during the Biennale Arte 2013.
