LAWTF was founded in 1993 as a non-profit arts organization by Adilah Barnes and Miriam Reed to provide a venue for multicultural and multi-disciplined solo artists and their original works. We have presently produced close to 500 artists from around the globe including those from Europe, South America and the Middle East.
In 1994, Della Reese hosted our first Awards Ceremony. Past Infinity Awardees who have had someone come in person to receive their award posthumously have included representatives for Bea Arthur, Yolanda King, Eartha Kitt and Aliana Reed Hall..
