about the piket art prizes
Since 2014, the Piket Art Prizes have been awarded to young artists who have a connection with the city of The Hague, either through developing their practice there and/or because their work makes a stimulating contribution to The Hague’s cultural climate. Name giver Frederik Hendrik Piket (1927-2011), lawyer and member of the Senate for the CHU (later CDA), was a great lover of art and culture. After his death, a foundation was created that annually aims to award three artists under the age of 30 with a stimulation prize.
