THE MARTY AND LEAH SKLAR
CREATIVE VISIONARY AWARD

The MARTY AND LEAH SKLAR CREATIVE VISIONARY AWARD is presented annually to an individual of singular creative vision and leadership who has made a distinctive contribution to the creative community: illuminating, inspiring and expanding the impact, relevance and reach of the arts through their work and creative vision. It is named for two visionaries who were co-founders of Ryman Arts. Leah Sklar has been active in community and educational initiatives throughout her life, including a key role in the development of Ryman Arts’ mission and program. Marty Sklar was the legendary Executive Vice President and Ambassador of Walt Disney Imagineering, leading the creation of the Disney theme parks around the world.

From Iron Man to Thor, Captain America to Guardians of the Galaxy, Kevin’s guiding hand has creatively expanded each franchise and the super hero genre in unexpected ways. More recently, the films Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War have reached new audiences and achieved record-breaking box office success. On every project, Kevin and Marvel Studios have pushed beyond the expected spectacle, scale and special effects of the genre to find rich emotional content and humanity in each story.
