2017 Legends Award Reception

The Legends Award pays tribute to women whose work embodies the mission of the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM). The award was created in 2009 to honor trend-setters, visionaries and innovators. The recipients have mastered their field and use their knowledge and skills to better the community. Nominated by their peers, a select group of women are honored each year through original art and prose that will tour the Mid-South with the Legends Award Art Exhibition. The pieces are created in a collaborative effort between an artist and a writer to represent the honorees’ life. There are now 63 Legends Award Honorees. A body of art and prose that communicates their strength, grace and vision are on permanent display at The Hall of Legends in the Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women.
