Golf community applauds founding of Art of Freedom Foundation
Golf Digest Editorial Director Max Adler with Artist Valentino Dixon, Georgetown Professor Marc Howard and MaliVai “Mal” Washington

Nearly 100 golf aficionados celebrated the launching of Valentino Dixon’s Art of Freedom Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to shining a light on injustice by working with local, state, and federal lawmakers to achieve prison and sentencing reform and to champion the voices of the wrongly convicted during a special reception July 8 at TPC Sawgrass. The audience participated in a question and answer session with Dixon and watched a short documentary on his experience in prison and the creation of his many famous golf course drawings. On hand at the event were Max Adler, editorial director for Golf Digest, and Marc Howard, Georgetown University law professor and director of the Prisons and Justice Initiative, both of whom helped gain Dixon’s exoneration and release, as well as Commissioner Jay Monahan and Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President Ron Price of the PGA Tour.
