Our greatest hope with the Rappaport Prize is to stimulate and advance artistic energy and expression.
Think of the ways artists shape the way we look at the world and one other. Artists, like leaders in politics and medicine, have the potential to influence our perspective on life and the nature of self. Contemporary artists work in the now. In raising the awareness of and appreciation for the artistic leaders among us today, the Rappaport Foundation hopes to inspire a community and perhaps, a nation.
