Rosanne Cash To Receive Visionary Leadership Award


Four-time Grammy winner singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash will be honored with the Visionary Leadership Award at the 2019 New Haven's International Festival of Arts & Ideas.

The award ceremony will be held at a luncheon fundraiser on February 26 at the Omni New Haven Hotel.

The Visionary Leadership Award is given to women whose "trailblazing work is impacting the world," according to the festival. The award was established in 2010 in honor of Jean Handley, one of the three women who co-founded Arts & Ideas in 1996.

Previous recipients of the award include the poet Claudia Rankine, journalist Sheryl WuDunn, singer and Goodwill ambassador Angélique Kidjo and Women for Women International founder Zainab Salbi.

All proceeds from the Award Luncheon support The Jean Handley Fund for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. In the past this fund has supported world and U.S. premieres, free programming, and Festival-commissioned works.
