The Rappaport Prize is an annual art award presented by the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum through the generosity of the Phyllis & Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation. The Foundation has funded a $25,000 prize, given to a contemporary American artist each year since 2000, making it among the longest-running and most generous contemporary art prizes in the United States. The Rappaport Prize has come to symbolize DeCordova's commitment to supporting the best art and artists in the region, as well as the donor's commitment to recognizing and supporting leadership in diverse fields throughout New England.
