Founders Award 2021
On November 6, 2021, Magicana was named this year’s recipient for the Founders Award by the board of directors of the New England Magic Collectors Association. This biennial award was created in 2017 in honour and memory of two of the Association’s founders and dedicated collectors, Ray Goulet and Ed Hill. Specifically, the award recognizes the recipient for “long-standing and exemplary accomplishments in the disciplines of magic collecting and magic history that significantly reflect the mission and ideas of the New England Magic Collectors Association.”
Magicana is honoured to join the company of previous award winners, the American Museum of Magic (2017) and the Conjuring Arts Research Centre (2019).
Magicana’s mandate is to advance the study and exploration of magic as an art, and we strive to reach this ambitious goal through a wide variety of activity. To be recognized with the Founders Award for our work in the area of preserving and sharing magic history is of a particular honour, as it is also acknowledgment from one’s peers.
Thank you to the New England Magic Collectors Association for this tremendous honour; and we will continue to do all that we can in sharing wonder.
