The Vinnie Ream Award

Submissions open between January 31, 2021 and March 15, 2021

The awards honor the legacy of Lavinia Ellen “Vinnie” Ream, a Pen Woman who was a Civil War era artist. Ream was a student of the harp throughout her life and often incorporated an image of a harp in her work as a sculptor. Harp pendants in sterling silver and gemstones will be awarded at each Biennial to first-place winners in the art, letters, and music categories.
