The WAG newsletter announces that Kathleen Richardson, longtime supporter of the arts in Winnipeg, had been awarded the Edmund C. Bovey Award for outstanding leadership in the arts by a member of the business community. The award stipulates that the recipient must donate the $20,000 award to an arts organization; Richardson disperses it equally among four Winnipeg arts institutions, including $5,000 to the WAG.
