Singer and author Judy Collins, just off an 18-month tour with Stephen Stills, and with hit song “Dreamers” on the Billboard charts, was back in New York City, her home since the ’70s, on February 4 to accept the Joe’s Pub Vanguard Award & Residency for 2019. The award celebrates the career of a singular artist who has contributed to American life and pop culture. Alex Knowlton, Director of Joe’s Pub, which is part of the Public Theater, said, “Continuing this program into its second year with the voice of a generation is a dream. Beyond her extraordinary talent, Judy Collins remains one of America’s most vital artists because of her creative rigor and dedication to her artistry. “ Ever the activist, Judy’s song “Dreamers” is about the deportations of young undocumented immigrants who were brought here as babies. Judy also dined at the Century Club with Louise Peabody, whose painting of Judy was part of an exhibition of contemporary art created by the club’s members. ♦
