Artistic License implies so many ideas: freedom of expression, residual rights and royalties, the daring to be different, to make a difference through innovation and service. In 2008, we conceived of the Artistic License Awards to recognize persons and organizations who have mastered their arts (intended in the broadest possible sense) in extraordinary ways for the communities they serve. Honorees are leaders whose acts of generosity and examples of innovation have inspired so many others to stretch beyond their "comfort zones" and take on the challenges of our times. -Alma Robinson, Executive Director
