Solange Named Harvard Foundation’s 2018 Artist of the Year


Congratulations are in order for our very own and founder, Solange, for being named the 2018 Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year!

After the debut of her acclaimed album A Seat at the Table in 2016, Solange used her voice and creativity to advocate for representation, political justice, and diversity within the arts, including the growth and expansion of our platform Saint Heron. From a performance at the White House for President Barack Obama to occupying the art realm with performance art shows at the Guggenheim Museum, the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, along with her art installation at London’s Tate Modern museum, Solange has enveloped themes lifted from her album of representation, empowerment, and healing throughout her artistry over the past year and a half, truly defining her career to date.

Solange will be recognized and honored at the annual Harvard Foundation award ceremony on March 3rd during the Cultural Rhythms Festival in the Memorial Hall’s Sanders Theatre. Previous Harvard Foundation awards have been presented to the likes of the multi-talented Viola Davis, Queen Latifah, Halle Berry, LL Cool J, Jackie Chan, Denzel Washington, Salma Hayek, and Eva Longoria to name a few.

Congratulations, Solange!
