The Neddy Award began in 1996 as a tribute to the life and work of Robert E. [Ned] Behnke and has been stewarded by Cornish College of the Arts since 2011. It is a free and open application call to artists living and working in the greater Puget Sound region.
We extend our thanks to the Behnke Foundation for funding and fully supporting The Neddy Award at Cornish.
CONGRATULATIONS Anthony and Kimisha!!
