The GFAA program honors innovation in design, historical context, educational value, and public appeal. The program will be instrumental to develop interest and passion for fine art, and further its educational role in society. This award program recognizes and rewards the best fine art exhibitions and installations of the past year (Aug 1, 2013 – Jul 31, 2014)
Five awards are juried, and a sixth award, “Youniversal,” is determined by public voting. The program consists of a digital platform, with social media and website (http://www.globalfineartawards.org), and a live award ceremony to take place in Miami on Monday, December 1, 2014.
As part of its educational mission, the GFAA program is partnering with a global children’s art charity, the International Child Art Foundation (ICAF), a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves children in over 80 countries. The partnership will further promote the shared ideals of art, creativity and peace. A portion of net proceeds will directly benefit the ICAF programs.
