Honoring Joan W. Harris 

Long-time AMFS supporter and Honorary Trustee Joan W. Harris will be honored for her immeasurable philanthropic impact on the AMFS as well as the many other organizations she supports.

She has served as President, Chair, Director, and Trustee for many Chicago and national cultural organizations, including the Juilliard School, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the League of American Orchestras. Mrs. Harris served on the President’s Commission for the National Endowment for the Arts (1990) and was Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the City of Chicago (1987-1989) where she worked to emphasize Chicago’s importance as a cultural center both nationally and internationally. She also served as President of the Chicago Opera Theater and the Arts Alliance Illinois. It is through her leadership at Harris Theater for Music and Dance that small performance companies have a permanent site in which to perform. In 2014, Joan was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Obama for her support of the arts through the Irving Harris Foundation
