The Olivia Spencer Bower Foundation Art Award is a year long residency in Christchurch. The recipient receives a stipend of $30,000 and a studio at The Physics Room.
The general purpose of the award is to encourage and promote New Zealand artists and sculptors with particular emphasis on future artistic potential rather than financial need. It was Olivia’s specific objective to assist New Zealand artists and sculptors with talent so they could devote their energies, on a full time basis for a twelve month period, to painting and sculpture freed from the necessity to seek outside employment.
