Arts editors from The Stranger and our quarterly arts magazine, A&P, spent all of last year noticing the most compelling artists in the city and nominated favorites for a Genius Award. Past Genius–winners join our writers in determining the Genius Award winner in each of the five categories after a summer series highlighting the work of the finalists and the voting results are announced live, Academy Awards–style.
Award winners receive a check for $5,000 and an obscene amount of attention. There is no application process; to be considered, an artist must simply make original work that provokes critical attention.
