Descriptive Summary

Creator: Patterson, Clayton
Title: Magie Dominic Acker Award
Dates [inclusive]: 2017
Abstract: Magie Dominic (1944- ) is a Canadian writer and artist. She studied at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and was an influential member of the Off-Off-Broadway movement, performing in and directing numerous productions at Joe Cino's Caffe Cino. Her 2002 memoir The Queen of Peace Room, an exploration of memory and violence against women, was shortlisted for the Canadian Women’s Studies Award,  ForeWord magazine’s Book of the Year Award, and the Judy Grahn Award. This collection consists of an Acker Award presented to Dominic in 2017. The award honors members of the avant garde arts community for outstanding contributions "in their discipline in defiance of convention, or served their fellow writers and artists in outstanding ways." The award itself is a small collection of artifacts contributed by the other New York City award recipients as well as a copy of the annual Ackers "chapbook" which contains photographs and biographies of all of the year's honorees.
