2023 Leigh Weimers Emerging Artists Awards applications open April 3
The Leigh Weimers Emerging Artists Awards is a program of the Rotary Club of San Jose created in honor and memory of the iconic Mercury News columnist who did so much to publicize and support the arts in Silicon Valley.
“I’m honored to work with many of Leigh’s friends to recognize emerging artists, which was something very close to his heart. We all miss him terribly, and he would be pleased to see his support of the arts and artists continue.”
– Steve Borkenhagen, co-founder of the awards committee
