The Jutta Cuny-Franz Memorial Award was founded by Ruth-Maria Franz (1910–2008) to keep the memory of her daughter and artist Jutta Cuny (1940–1983). Jutta Cuny was a distinguished protagonist of European glass sculpture from the mid-1970s to her early death. Shaped by sand-blasting from solid glass blocks, her sculptures opened new paths into glass art. Ruth-Maria Franz established the Jutta Cuny-Franz Foundation in Vienna in 1984. By her request, the seat of the foundation was transferred in 1994 to the city of Dusseldorf. The foundation’s tasks are being managed at the Glasmuseum Hentrich, Museum Kunstpalast.
