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 of 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. The Best of Graduates is an exhibition of the graduation work of the most talented students of accredited Photography and Fine Arts courses of the Dutch art academies of each year.
Yearly the winner of the Lakeside Collection Award will be granted an artist-in-residence program in the private compartment of the Lakeside Collection in Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, including financial support of EUR 5.000,- and guidance during this period. With this award, the Lakeside Collection aims to support and provide visibility for young, local and contemporary artists. Creating a long term relationship with the artists is an important anchor of the program.
