Judging by the sprawling yet solid show that opens today at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the seven finalists in this year's Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize competition are all such top-tier talents that choosing a winner will be a serious challenge.
Selected from a field of 320 applicants, the finalists are sculptor Richard Cleaver, photographer Frank Hallam Day, animator Eric Dyer, artist/musician Geoff Grace, conceptual artist Baby Martinez, painter Tony Shore and video artist Karen Yasinsky. The winner of the $25,000 prize will be announced July 13.
