The Visionary Woman Awards began in 2003 to recognize outstanding women leaders who have made an impact on the worlds of art and design and are powerful role models for our students.  The Awards engage students, faculty and the broader community in opportunities to learn.  

2020 Visionary Woman Awards

Moore College of Art & Design will present the 2020 Visionary Woman Awards to interior designer Barbara Eberlein and photographer Susan Unterberg. Because of a steadfast commitment to the health and safety of our community, Moore will hold the first-ever virtual Visionary Woman Awards on Wednesday, October 7th at 6:00 pm. The event will premiere a new video produced by a new storyteller and offer a personal glimpse of Barbara and Susan’s approach to their work through a digital Elizbeth Greenfield Zeidman lecture. In advance of the event, attendees will receive an “at-home gala” kit to launch the celebration.
