Extraordinary Awards supports artists from across the nation by highlighting their artwork that supports our mission.  Our Nomination Certificate was painted by artist Emmanuel Crespo.  Each month, a different artist will create a special trophy/award for the Extraordinary Award recipient.  The artists will be listed here as the awards are announced each month.  Please check back often to connect to our talented artists! 




The Extraordinary Awards nomination certificate was painted by artist, Emmanuel Crespo.  Emmanuel is a member of the Los Angeles Artist Association and a teacher at Bishop Alemany High School.  His artist statement is "My work is produced from a well of collected images that I have absorbed over the course of my life.  It has been a way for me to process and articulate the mythologies I have adopted, hybridized, and constructed.  It is a product of my consistent search for and my construction of symbols and narratives in the world around me."
