Julie Leidner is 2015 winner of the M. A. Hadley Prize for Visual Art

Congratulations to our own Julie Leidner the 2015 winner of the MARY ALICE HADLEY PRIZE FOR VISUAL ART. In collaboration with another local artist, Katy Delahanty, Leidner is pursuing a documentary-style graphic novel that tells the stories of pioneering feminist social activists in Kentucky. Leidner will use the $5,000 Hadley Prize to travel to New York City to attend the 10th annual New York Art Book Fair and the seventh annual Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference, as well as view museum exhibitions, attend panels and participate in workshops directly
related to the collaborative project.
