Eleanor Worthington Prize
The Eleanor Worthington Prize is awarded to students of Art Schools at University level by the Associazione Premio Eleanor Worthington, based in Urbino, Italy. It celebrates the International Day of Persons with Disabilities for work in the visual arts on the theme of disability.
This exhibition includes a selection of work submitted for the Eleanor Worthington Prize 2020, under the theme of ‘Inclusion of Disability in Raphael’s World’. The theme was chosen to celebrate the fifth centenary of the painter Raphael from Urbino. The Prize has been established in memory of Eleanor Worthington, a severely disabled Anglo-Italian young woman whose enthusiasm for living inspired so many. She lived in York and in Urbino, Italy.
The United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities is held on 3 December each year and aims to increase awareness, and promote the rights and wellbeing, of persons with disabilities.
The exhibition is on display along York Hospital’s main corridor, between J5-6 until January 2022
