About the Awards

The Kairos Award recognizes exceptional achievements in the arts--including the advancement of the arts--through activities at Marquette University and beyond. The Greek word “kairos,” which means “the creative moment in time,” has been chosen to symbolize the spirit of this award. The Patricia B. Apple Award recognizes individuals whose service has made a lasting impact on the Friends of the Haggerty Museum of Art. The award is named for Patricia B. Apple, chair of the fundraising campaign to build the Haggerty Museum of Art and inaugural president of Marquette University's Women’s Council.

Proceeds from the Haggerty Awards Dinner support the Haggerty Museum of Art Fund. The purpose of the Haggerty Museum of Art Fund is to provide support for the Haggerty Museum of Art. The Fund, to be held and administered at the discretion of the Director of the Haggerty Museum of Art subject to University policies and procedures, will be used for the operation of the Museum including exhibitions, academic and community engagement, collection care, and administration.
