SVLaureates are awarded in six categories/disciplines, including a Legacy Laureate Award for lifetime artistic achievement and community impact. Each Artist Laureate receives a cash award to celebrate and encourage the continuing development of their artistic work – one of the rare cash awards for artistic career accomplishment in the Bay Area south of San Francisco. Since 1991, more than 150 artists have received an SVLaureate Award.
