PAFA, from Dolly to Motherwell

sponsored

What do the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Dolly Parton have in common? Why they are both recipients of the 2005 National Medal of Honor, announced this week by the NEA, for making “significant and enduring contributions to the artistic life of our nation.”

Congratulations! By the way, the Academy in its press release did not mention Dolly. They did mention past honorees Robert Motherwell and Louise Bourgeois. This year, no fine artists made the cut.
