Willard L. Metcalf Award for a young artist of great promise.
In 1986, the Academy received a bequest from Addison M. Metcalf, son of the late member Willard L. Metcalf (1858 - 1925), for an award to honor young artists of great promise. The Willard L. Metcalf Award in Art is a biennial prize of $10,000, and will be presented to Aleah on May 18th at the Academy's annual ceremonial. All winners of the institution's 2016 awards will showcase their work in a special exhibition May 18th - June 12th at the Academy.

The human figure has been depicted by artists for centuries and is still a constant source of inspiration. Artists have represented the male and female body as a symbol, used its forms and shapes to explore power and movement, presented it to show allegories from mythology or simply celebrated the human body for its beauty, elegance or eroticism. Drawn from The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art, featured artists include Henry Moore, Jacob Epstein, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink, Ralph Brown, Allen Jones, Reg Butler, Anthony Green and Aleah Chapin.
