Victor Jacoby, an internationally recognized visual artist whose chosen medium was French tapestry, established the Victor Thomas Jacoby Fund with Humboldt Area Foundation before his death in 1997, at the age of 52. This trust is dedicated to supporting Humboldt County visual artists and craftspeople by supporting the artistic exploration of new ideas, materials, techniques, and mediums. The fund distributes annual awards to artists or craftspeople selected by a specific review panel of local arts representatives.
