The Ontario Crafts Council

is honoured to announce the

Lily Yung Memorial Award.

A new award has been set up in Lily’s memory at the Ontario Crafts Council.  Lily had expressed interest in an award for a senior craft artist after she received the Mather Award for Lifetime Achievement in June 2010.

The Lily Yung Memorial Award will be awarded for the first time in June 2011.

We wish to raise enough funds to allow the award to be granted annually.  If you would like to donate towards the award, all transactions will take place through the Ontario Crafts Council (OCC) office.

A video of Lily discussing receiving her Mather award captures beautifully what she always strove to do with her art:
