Hermitage Artist Retreat, Greenfield Foundation Announce Greenfield Prize Weekend

Arts and Culture


The Hermitage Artist Retreat and the Philadelphia-based Greenfield Foundation have announced the details of the Greenfield Prize weekend, scheduled for April 13–14. This year’s celebration begins with the world premiere opening of Fourth Quarter: Senior Athletes, and their Indomitable Spirit at The Ringling, featuring new work by photojournalist David Burnett, the 2017 recipient of the Greenfield Prize. For this project, which was part of Burnett’s 2017 Greenfield commission, he spent two years photographing senior-aged athletes from around the country who dedicate themselves to serious physical competition and team sports. He treats his subjects with reverence as he celebrates their tenacity and challenges viewers to rethink what aging means in the 21st century.

Also included is a “Creative Conversations” event with Burnett and the 2019 Greenfield Prize recipient, composer, vocalist and performer Helga Davis. These events are free to attend and  will take place on April 13 from 3pm to 5pm, Davis begins at 3pm with “My Life, My Work,” and a panel discussion follows at 4pm. Helga Davis will be honored at the 2019 Greenfield Prize Award dinner on April 14 at Michael’s On East. Tickets begin at $150; reservations can be made online at the website below.
