The Artist for Artists Project was a four-year arts advocacy pilot project. Running from 2012-2016, the mission of the Artist for Artists Project was to provide opportunity and recognition to emerging visual artists in the form of three competitive prizes, two juried exhibitions-in-print (catalogs), and an exhibition held at the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford in West Hartford, CT.

Founder and Project Director, Laura Vasselle, introduced the Williams Prize in Drawing for Emerging Artists in 2014, continuing the prize in 2015 and 2016. To read more about the specifics of the Williams Prize in Drawing,
