Nine writers have been awarded with a $50,000 grant by the fourth annual Rabkin Prize for Arts Writers : Mary Abbe, Jerry Cullum, Neil Fauerso, Amanda Fortini, Sam Lefebvre, Steve Litt, Erin Nelson, Seph Rodney, and Elisa Turner.

The Rabkin Foundation, established in 1999 by Dorothea and New York–based artist and art collector Leo Rabkin, recognizes outstanding contributions by art critics who inform the public through their writing on contemporary art. “In this unprecedented and tragic time, the foundation released funding immediately and chose to forego the celebrations and formalities that made this moment so enjoyable and memorable in recent years,” said the Rabkin Foundation.
