Hugo Boss continues to support the arts with their Hugo Boss Prize, which recognizes achievement in contemporary art. The Hugo Boss Prize is awarded every other year to an artist (or group of artists) working in any medium, anywhere in the world. The prize is administered by the Guggenheim Museum and sponsored by the Hugo Boss clothing company. It carries with it a cash award of $100,000 and a tetrahedral trophy.
