Description

Please join us Sunday afternoon, November 5th, 2017 to celebrate the life and inspiration of Haven Street-Allen and to kick off the nominations for the first VSA Texas Artist Award named in her memory.

Light refreshments will be served with music by Michael Tidmore and the Rollers.

We are excited to announce our Inaugural Artist of the Year Award in memory of past board member, Forrest Haven Street-Allen. The Haven Street-Allen Artist of the Year Award is offered in memory of Haven who was an insightful and caring person, fiercely committed to helping others. She was a Board Member of VSA Texas as well as the Austin Dispute Resolution Center, a volunteer mediator for the Resolution Center, and the Director of Human Resources for St. Edward’s University in Austin until her retirement in 2012. At VSA Texas, she willingly shared her knowledge and insights with her fellow board members and the staff, and supported the activities offered by VSA Texas through her presence and financial support. She was instrumental in updating the organization’s personnel policies and led the board through an interactive process to update both the mission and vision statements. The Haven Street-Allen Artist of the Year Award recognizes her dedication, vision and respect for all, and honors her commitment to creating greater access to, and support for, artists with disabilities in Texas.

Accessible parking available at the venue. Limited street parking available. Complimentary parking at Texas School for the Deaf (Elizabeth Street side) with shuttle service to the event. Capitol Metro buses 801,1, 5 & 10.
