Given annually by Illinois Humanities since 1984, the Public Humanities Award luncheon recognizes individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the civic and cultural life of the state through the humanities.
Thank you for helping us as we honored Howard Tullman, CEO of 1871, the startup incubator for technologists and entrepreneurs, for fostering a vibrant relationship between the humanities and business through his commitment to diversifying the technology community, encouraging art as a vantage point for expression and digital innovation, and developing an entrepreneurial culture that supports the public good.
