Five finalists announced for the
30th annual Saidye Bronfman Award

Gatineau, Quebec, July 12, 2006 — Canadian artists Kevin Lockau, Michael D. Massie, Peter Pierobon, Peter Powning and Anna Torma have been named finalists for the 30th annual $25,000 Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence in the Fine Crafts. The announcement was made by The Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation, in association with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Museum of Civilization — both partners in the Award.

The Saidye Bronfman Award is one of the largest individual visual arts prizes in Canada. In addition to the cash prize, works by the Award recipient are acquired by the Canadian Museum of Civilization for its permanent collection. In recent years, The Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation has contributed over $250,000 for the purchase of works by previous Award recipients. The Canadian Museum of Civilization’s fine crafts collection is the largest public collection in Canada, with over 2,000 works by craftspeople from across the country.

The Saidye Bronfman Award recipient will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Canadian Museum of Civilization on Wednesday, October 25, 2006. The recipient’s work will be displayed as part of a major exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, entitled UNIQUE! 30 Years of Outstanding Crafts that will be on view from October 26, 2006 through August 5, 2007. This exhibition will investigate 30 years of Canadian craft production as documented in the Canadian Museum of Civilization's collection, including work by all 30 recipients of the Saidye Bronfman Award. This year’s award recipient will also be featured in a 30-second Artspots profile, both created by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and presented on the national television network.
