Benefactor of the Arts Award
Honors an individual, family, organization or business making significant financial contributions to the arts.
Mary and I shared a dream that came true! That dream envisioned a media arts center, dedicated to the art of the moving image, which would serve the University, this community, the state, and the region. Thanks to her magnanimous generosity to our community and university, that center and its program will continue to be vibrant and significant for the foreseeable future.
