Each year $300 is awarded to a Sunshine Coast artist who began their creative endeavours later in life. The Klein Award was created in 2000 to honour the memory of Anne and Philip Klein and to encourage artists to continue their artistic passion late in life. After active careers, the Kleins became art students in retirement: she as a spinner and weaver, and he as a sculptor. Their work garnered numerous awards, and after they settled in Roberts Creek, Anne Klein became a member of the Arts Council. The Award is financed by donations from the Klein family, friends and others who approve of the kind of encouragement it offers.
