Since its creation in 1997, the York Wilson Endowment Award has been given annually to an
eligible Canadian art museum or public gallery to assist with the purchase of an
original artwork by a Canadian artist. The award, which is the result of three gifts
totaling $613,636 from the late Lela M. Wilson and the late Maxwell Henderson, honours the
contribution of Canadian painter York Wilson by contributing to the acquisition of new
works by living, contemporary Canadian painters and sculptors.
The York Wilson Endowment Award is valued at up to $30,000 annually.
