Martha Richards, the Founder and Executive Director of The Fund for Women Artists is one of three U.S. nominees for the 2007 Montblanc de la Culture Award. The other two U.S. nominees for this prestigious award are Quincy Jones & Wynton Marsalis.
Created in 1992, the Montblanc de la Culture Award is an "Oscar of the Arts" designed to honor people around the world who sustain the arts for future generations. The award is one of several initiatives sponsored by Montblanc, a company with a 100-year history of supporting art and culture worldwide.
"The Fund for Women Artists is thrilled by the growing international recognition of women's cultural contributions," said Martha Richards. "This nomination is another affirmation of the value of the women artists that we work so hard to serve."
Montblanc is a proud sponsor of New York's Tribeca Film Festival this year, and the Montblanc de la Cuture Award will be presented at a special star-studded invitation- only ceremony at the festival. The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 25 to May 6.
