The Woman of Distinction Award

In light of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Dr. Kathleen Jameson’s vision is to celebrate women in the arts, such as Lee Krasner (Mrs. Jackson Pollock) the painter of The Sun Woman II, who faced enormous hurdles to achieve recognition. A single mother who began her education in community college while her daughter was still a child, she faced many of the same struggles as our Live Your Dream recipients and the female artists she celebrates.

Kathleen Jameson, art historian, educator and administrator was presented with The Woman of Distinction Award because she met the award criteria of being a woman whose outstanding achievements professionally have been extraordinarily inspirational and impactful to the lives of women and girls.
