Paula Henry Peace Award

GVCA is pleased to announce the creation of the Paula Henry Peace Award, offered in collaboration with Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace. The Paula Henry Peace Award honors the work and values of our friend Paula Henry, who passed away in 2017.  An artist and active member of the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts, Paula also was a long-time member of Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace.  With GVCP, she envisioned world peace and strived to create a world where conflict did not include war, weapons, and nuclear proliferation. The artwork chosen for the Paula Henry Peace Award will reflect this vision.

The award is offered in the amount of $250 and will be given to the artist whose submission best represents the theme of peace. Judging will occur after Artwork Drop-Off, and the winner will be announced at the Opening Reception of the 2019 Freedom of Expression Member’s Exhibition.
