Honorable Knight Foundation Champion
Every year, as part of the Knight Arts Challenge announcement, Knight also selects a group of Knight Arts Champions — community leaders in South Florida who have contributed to our region’s rich arts and culture scene. The Champions direct $10,000, provided by Knight, to South Florida artist or arts organization of their choice. Karelle Levy was selected as one of these Champions

Her large-scale site-specific fiber art installations accompany workshops with a focus on craft, sustainability and zero waste practices.
