New York's American Folk Art Museum has honoured Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, the founder, director, and principal curator of the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, with its 2017 Visionary Award. Celebrated for her imaginative approaches to arts administration and exhibition-making, and her dedication to the work and ideas of self-taught artists, Hoffberger noted that "using their art to tell human stories has the power to resonate and heal." AFAM's award is supported by the museum's longtime trustee and benefactor, Audrey B. Heckler.
