2010 JERRY GARCIA AWARD
Arts for Humanity! empowers low-income at-risk youth, and youth with disabilities, through participatory performing and visual arts programs.
In partnership with local artists, student interns, and community organizations, the programs cross generational, socio-economic, physical, and developmental divides to make the arts accessible to all. Participation cultivates creativity and gives voice to the underserved while inspiring the younger generation to become future leaders.
In memory of Grateful Dead guitarist and founding Rex board member Jerry Garcia, this award is designed to honor and support individuals and groups that work to encourage creativity in young people.
