HOW IS HONEYWELL ARTS ACADEMY CONNECTED TO HONEYWELL FOUNDATION?
Upon his passing, Wabash native Richard Ford, visionary and original host of Wabass Institute, left Honeywell Foundation to steward the Wabass legacy. Over the years the great impact of Wabass on the local and musical communities left the artistic and Honeywell teams questioning how they can do more? In 2020 Honeywell Arts Academy was born. Honeywell Arts Academy is a designated 501c3 that operates under the umbrella of Honeywell Foundation.
