Visual Arts awards

Visual arts awards at the BSR offer artists access to Rome and Italy as an exceptional repertory of the visual culture of the past, and encourage informed and innovative responses to that cultural heritage. They offer artists at different stages of their careers the superb opportunity to research and focus on their work away from normal pressures, and to use the BSR as a base to explore Rome and Italy.

Awards include accommodation and board in one of our purpose-designed artist’s studios which include a mezzanine bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
