The Vail Symposium handed out its first-ever Explorers Award this week to Bobba and Dick Hauserman.If you know Dick and Bobba, you know they are a dynamic, vivacious couple. The two are a living interpretation of the award, which is meant to celebrate individuals who display an openness to explore new paths and fearlessly pursue dynamic learning for a lifetime.

Both Dick and Bobba have led their lives like one of Dicks books, exciting chapter followed by exciting chapter. They know that no book is complete until its been sent to the publisher and bound. And their story is nowhere near complete.

Theres way too much to say about Dick, who celebrates his 90th year this week. From Vails early days, when Dick designed Vails omnipresent logo, to his 21st century accomplishments as author, Dick is a constant work in progress. Having studied architecture, he is now merely returning to his artistic roots. Bobba, as well, is returning to her roots she was a fashion designer in New York.To pursue their love of art, they attended the National Academy in New York. Several pieces of their art were displayed and sold at the event with the proceeds benefiting the programs of the Vail Symposium. From the number of red stickers indicating the painting had been sold, it would appear the two are establishing a great collector base in Vail.



The Vail Symposium initiated the Explorers Ward as a way to honor and celebrate individuals who embody and exemplify and inspire the key founding principle of the Vail Symposium that of lifelong learning, said Fraidy Aber, executive director of the symposium. Dick and Bobba Hauserman are truly exceptional, their drive, fearlessness and perseverance really shaped this award,” she said.
