Event description

Description

When PlatteForum’s Co-founder Judy Anderson retired as artistic director, a group of long-time PlatteForum supporters created the Judy Anderson Founder’s Award Endowment. The endowment was established to honor Judy’s years of service to PlatteForum and the Denver arts community. The endowment provides funds towards an annual financial award to a past PlatteForum Resident Artist. The Judy Anderson Founder’s Award was given for the first time in 2017 to artist Andrea Moore who was a Resident Artist with PlatteForum in 2013.

This year, Judy will present the second annual Founder’s Award to Michael Henry. Michael was a PlatteForum Creative Resident in 2006 and is the founder and executive director of Lighthouse Writers Workshop. Michael’s nonfiction work and poetry have appeared in numerous literary journals and magazines such as Ekphrastic Review, Hippocampus, Threepenny Review, Pleiades, Copper Nickel, Rio Grande Review, Georgetown Review, Mountain Gazette, and 5280 Magazine. He's also published two books of poetry, No Stranger Than My Own and Active Gods, and a chapbook, Intersection. In 2017 he was awarded a prestigious Livingston Fellowship from the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation.

Your $50 donation for a ticket will include admittance, wine, light appetizers and entertainment. Proceeds will support the mission and programming of PlatteForum. $30 of your ticket price is tax deductible. Please purchase your tickets prior to the event as tickets at the door will be $60.
