Hilary Leggette, the Gregg Museum’s operations manager, was named a 2019 recipient of the Betty Siegel Universal Access and the Arts Award at the “Universal Access and the Arts Day” held at the Raleigh Convention Center on Tuesday, July 30.
The award recognizes “the substantial achievements of those Arts Learning Community for Universal Access members who have completed all three years of the program and have successfully improved the accessibility of their organizations through multiple projects and initiatives over the years. They are also recognized as arts community resources, sharing their knowledge and engaging their arts and cultural peers, as well as others, around the topic of accessibility in the arts.”
According to Sarah Corrin, arts grant director for the Office of Raleigh Arts, Hilary was chosen because of her strong standing in the program and to honor the accessibility work she has spearheaded at the Gregg and elsewhere at NC State. As a part of Hilary’s honor, the Gregg will receive a $1,500 stipend to support an accessibility project of her choice for the museum.
