Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal Honors Janet and Arthur Ross

In honor of their outstanding contributions to New York City’s natural and built environment, the board of directors of the MAS has presented the 2006 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal to philanthropists and civic leaders Janet and Arthur Ross. The award ceremony took place at the MAS Annual Dinner on Tuesday, October 24 in the magnificent Art Deco lobby of Eleven Madison Avenue.

Janet and Arthur Ross have invested their energy, spirit and resources in an extraordinary number of projects in New York, and each one has made the city more beautiful, more livable and more admired. From Central Park’s Pinetum to neighborhood parks in all five boroughs to their support for architects, scholars and artists who sustain the classical tradition, the Rosses have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the city.

The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal is presented annually to an individual or organization whose work and deeds have made an outstanding contribution to the city of New York. The medal was named for Mrs. Onassis, an MAS board member, in 1994 in honor of her tireless efforts to preserve and protect New York’s great architecture.
