Survivors Art Foundation is proud to announce their Laureate status as a member of the "Year 2000 Computerworld Smithsonian Collection." The Medal Presentation took place at the National Mall in Washington DC, on April 3, 2000. SAF formally received recognition and a gold medal from the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution and the Director of the National Museum of American History.
From the award ceremony commemorative booklet, "A Search for New Heroes:"
"The 444 Laureates listed here are leading one of the most remarkable revolutions in history. They have been nominated by the members of The Chairmen's Committee for inclusion in the 2000 Computerworld Smithsonian Collection as examples of how information technology is being used to improve society."
"On behalf of the Smithsonian Institution, the American people, and generations throughout the world for whom we hold these historic materials in trust, it is my honor and duty to bestow this medallion in commemoration of the outstanding quality of your work, and to thank you for your contribution to the history of information technology."
