Alice In Chains are set to be honored with this year’s Museum Of Pop Culture (MoPOP) Founders Award. The award will be presented during a special virtual event on December 1.
The following was said about the event [via Blabbermouth]:
“This one-night-only benefit will feature performances by ALICE IN CHAINS, as well as an acclaimed lineup of guest and youth musicians who will put their own twist on some of the band’s most iconic songs.
For the first time ever, this annual event will be moving from MoPOP’s Sky Church to an online platform where it will be accessible and open for all, giving pop culture lovers across the world an opportunity to connect and become a part of its creative community.
While this year’s Founders Award will stream for free and be 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 its doors was especially difficult.
All proceeds raised through Founders Award will provide relief by allowing MoPOP to continue to serve its community, reach young people, and preserve its shared pop culture history during this difficult time.”
