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.
