About the Haimovicz Visual Arts Award
The Ida F. Haimovicz Visual Arts Award was established by the family of the late Ida F. Haimovicz to support a Montgomery County high school senior intent on pursuing a visual arts career. At age 64, Mrs. Haimovicz, a resident of North Bethesda, attended a sculpture class at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. This class started Mrs. Haimovicz on a much-loved hobby, said her son Joseph Hamer. “She began sculpting at home, but the clay became heavier and heavier as she grew older. She realized that she should have started much earlier in life.” Mrs. Haimovicz wanted to provide financial aid to deserving high school students to enjoy their creativity while still young. The award comes with a cash prize and the opportunity to be curated by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County in a solo art exhibition of the winner’s work
