Alice In Chains was thrilled to be honored and, upon receiving the award, guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell said, “This band started 33 years ago, three and a half miles down the road in Ballard… it's a pretty amazing journey that we're still on. There are so many great artists and friends who have contributed shout-outs and performances -- it's been a really cool experience and William, Sean, Mike, and I would like to thank everybody. And, as we accept these awards, we want to remember our bandmates as well, Layne Staley and Mike Starr. Wow, what a night!””

While this year's Founders Award streamed for free and was open to all, like many arts organizations around the country, MoPOP has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. As a community supported non-profit museum and in-person gathering space, closing our doors was especially difficult.

All proceeds raised through Founders Award will provide relief by allowing us to continue to serve our community, reach young people, and preserve our shared pop culture history during this difficult time.
