Ella King Torrey Young Artist Prize

The Ella King Torrey Young Artist Prize was created by Ella King’s mother, Ella Russell Torrey, in 2008 and celebrates Ella’s joy, excitement and commitment to artists by encouraging exceptional teenaged Fleisher students to further their exploration of the arts. An award of $1,000 is given to one young artist each year to support his or her continued development in the arts and increase exposure to opportunities in the arts.

An exhibition featuring work by this year’s applicants will be on view in Fleisher’s second floor hallway gallery through April 7. The winner will be announced during a ceremony preceding the opening of Wind Challenge 2 on Friday, April 7, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
