Update:
2020 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 

 

In light of the COVID-19 situation the South Australian Museum has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize.

The exhibition of finalists will now open on Friday 11 December 2020 at the South Australian Museum. Winners will be announced on Thursday 10 December 2020. 

While this change in scheduling has arisen in response to COVID-19, we look forward to presenting the 2020 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize in its much-loved format as the South Australian Museum’s prestigious summer exhibition at the end of 2020. 

 

 

About the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize

The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize commemorates the birth of the South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick George Waterhouse. The biennial prize is an opportunity for artists to investigate the world around them, and present their perspectives on natural science. It encourages artists to make a statement about the scientific issues facing our planet, and offers a valuable platform for them to contribute to the environmental debate. Over the years the competition has become a much loved fixture on the arts calendar, allowing artists and audiences to explore natural science through a range of creative outlets.

Entries for the 2020 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize are now open. They will close on 13 March 2020.
