This exhibition is a program of the Neddy at Cornish, funded by the Behnke Foundation and stewarded by Cornish College of the Arts as a tribute to the Seattle painter and teacher Ned Behnke (1948-1989).

This exhibition is supported by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery and the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design.

The Neddy Award was begun in 1996 as a tribute to the life and work of Robert E. [Ned] Behnke and has been stewarded by Cornish College of the Arts since 2011. It is a free and open call application to artists living and working in the greater Puget Sound region.
