The Awards Trophy
The Kingston Arts Council selected the design of Kingston
artist Fred Hedgcock as the official statuette for the
Awards for Excellence in the Arts from a juried competition
in 2003. The panel selected Fred's sculptural piece
as it was felt to represent celebration, triumph and
the joy of life. The Davies Charitable Foundation generously
provided the commission for the Award design.
