Franklin Fairbanks Award

“The Franklin Fairbanks Award is given each year to an individual, not necessarily a Vermonter, for lifelong creative and dedicated service to the residents of Vermont and/or New England, one whose body of work has significantly enriched regional and/or national awareness and understanding of our cultural heritage and/or the natural world, through contributions in the arts, humanities, or sciences.  Past ties to the Museum are not a factor in the selection process.”
