Turner Prize for Excellence in the Arts

Each year a fine art print is purchased and added to The Turner’s permanent collection in the name of The Turner Prize recipient.

This special purchase is made in honor of an individual, business or organization that has made a difference to the vitality of the arts in the North Valley.  The honoree's name is a permanent part of the artist label when that print is exhibited.
