2011 Wynn Newhouse Awards Exhibition

April 16- June 7, 2012

The Wynn Newhouse 2011 Awards were created to draw attention to the achievements of artists of excellence who happen to have disabilities.  In 2006 the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation established the Wynn Newhouse Awards.   This Awards program provides grants to artists of excellence who happen to have disabilities.  The Foundation currently allocates $60,000 per year for these Awards and these funds are distributed among winners at the discretion of the five invited judges on the selection committee.   A committee composed of persons respected in the arts and disabilities communities choose nominees and winners.  All eligible artists must be nominated and of professional standing with a disability, as recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
