The Gold Rush Awards were established by the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, an organization founded in 1995 by the Simmons brothers—Russell, Danny, and Joseph (a.k.a. Rev. Run). Its stated mission is to provide “disadvantaged urban youth with significant arts exposure, access and education as well as providing exhibition opportunities to early and mid-career artists and artists of color.” Giant magazine did a feature on Rush last year.
