The Vanguard Award & Residency is an award and yearlong residency that celebrates the career of a singular artist who has contributed to American life and pop culture and is a part of the Joe’s Pub family of artists. This artist also sustains and leads their own artistic community while creating a body of work that stands apart from their peers. Additionally, the award helps to close the music industry's widening gaps in funding.

HONORING OUR 2019 VANGUARD RESIDENT: 
JUDY COLLINS

Judy Collins is honored for her legendary career inspiring audiences with her sublime vocals and boldly vulnerable songwriting but also her fierce activism and mentorship to many artists. Beyond her own performances, the year under Collins’s distinctive curatorial guidance will include Thomas Dybdahl, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond and Ari Hest.
