Lakeside Collection Award
In 2021 the Lakeside Collection Award has been founded and for the first three years the collection is committed to presenting the award to one of the participants of the Best Graduates exhibition, organized annually by Galerie Ron Mandos and supported by the Ron Mandos Young Blood Foundation. Both the gallery and the foundation are admired for supporting young artists unconditionally.
Yearly the winner of the Lakeside Collection Award will be given an artist in residence program in the private compartment of the Lakeside Collection in Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, including financial support and guidance during this period. With this award, the Lakeside Collection aims to support and provide visibility for local and contemporary artists. Creating a long term relationship with the artists is an important anchor of the program.
