The 2013 Awards Gala will be held at New York’s famed Cipriani 42nd Street, on Wednesday, October 30, in the presence of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco.  The evening will be highlighted by the presentation of 24 awards to emerging artists in theater, dance and film, who hail from cities and states across America and will travel to New York City to receive their honor at the glamorous black tie ceremony followed by dinner, dancing and an exclusive silent auction.  In addition, we will recognize a prominent leader in the arts whose own accomplishments inspire the next generation of artists with the prestigious Prince Rainier III Award.  In past years, this Award has been bestowed upon Julie Andrews, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Glenn Close, George Lucas, Mandy Patinkin, Twyla Tharp, and Denzel & Pauletta Washington

For more than three decades, the Princess Grace Awards program has provided encouragement and support to the most talented emerging artists in America, and has become one of the nation’s premier grant-making institutions.  Notable past recipients include  Stephen Hillenburg, creator of SpongeBob SquarePants; Tony Kushner, Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Angels in America; Robert Battle, Artistic Director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; Jon Chu, award-winning film director of the GI Joe 2: Cobra Strikes sequel, and Anna D. Shapiro, Tony Award-winning director of August Osage County - to name a few.  Equally as important, we have supported nearly 700 artists who have continued to work and excel in their chosen art form.
