Art Sphere Inc. (ASI) is proud to share the accolades we receive. It is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers who give so much year after year.
The Federal Duck Stamp Contest is the only federally recognized art competition in the country. ASI has been submitting entries from the youth we serve for many years now! We are proud to teach conservation and appreciation art including our annual participation in this noble conservation and design program!
ASI was honored to receive The Volunteer Award from https://philadelphiaencyclopedia.org/archive/friends-neighborhood-guild/ for our service and commitment to their mission of “serving and responding to the needs of the people in its community, particularly those people who are less able to help themselves.”
The Philadelphia Spirit Community Awards were presented on Saturday, June 25th 2003 directly after their 7:30 performance. Featured in the program was the late Nobel Peace Prize winner, Professor Wangari Maathai, who shared her thoughts on the importance of community. Learn more about this ASI role model and hero here. ASI was awarded the Indian Trade Blanket to the left by Professor Maathai through the support of RSF.

The organizations that received the award were: The Lenape Nation, Native Nations Dance Theater, Art Sphere, Inc., White Dog Café Foundation, and Philadelphia Outward Bound.
