Herb Lockwood Prize in the Arts



Although he lived in Vermont for only five years, Herb Lockwood’s impact on the region’s arts and artists has proved to be enduring and profound. The breadth of art forms he practiced, and his influence on other artists in all manner of disciplines, created a legacy that remains inspirational decades later. The Herb Lockwood Prize seeks to recognize a person of comparable creativity and influence. The Prize aims to reward the pinnacle of arts leadership in a state blessed with creative energy disproportionate to its population.

Due to current limitations on social gathering, the 2020 Herb Lockwood Prize announcement event has been rescheduled for September 15 at 5 pm at the BCA Center in Burlington. If a physical event is still not realistic in September, we will produce a virtual event in its place.
