Individual Artist Grants and Services Program - Investing in the Future of Ohio's Artists
Individual artists are making a difference in communities across Ohio every day. They illuminate community identity and help us understand and imagine our lives in new ways. Our lives are richer and more remarkable because of the contribution of artists to the social, physical, economic and spiritual fabric of our neighborhoods and towns. The presence of artists in a particular place is a strong indicator of cultural vitality. Businesses, new and old alike, need places where work and play come together in creative and dynamic ways. Artists living and working in a community affect the extent to which arts and culture are integrated into the schools and the number of non-profit arts organizations, theatres, art classes, galleries, and venues for live music in that community.
The FY2014 Individual Excellence Award Panel Meetings
This year the panel meetings for the Individual Excellence Awards were held the weeks of December 9-12 and 16-19, 2013. If you applied to this year's deadline you will receive notice of the panelist recommendations sometime the first weeks of January. Notice will be sent out an email via OLGA (online applications system.) If you don't receive notice check in your junk mailbox, the OLGA emails often end up there. Once the OAC Board meets in March, the recipients of this year's awards will be loaded into our searchable grants database and also sent to the Ohio newspapers.
Here are this year's panelist bios:
