Awards

In 1992 the Arts Council began the tradition of honoring an Artist of the Year and Volunteer of the Year. In 2011 the Art Advocate Award was added. These awards are a celebration of excellence that introduces the community to important artists, raises our awareness of achievement in the visual arts, and invites us to applaud the "heroes" whose passion and creativity drive them to move, entertain, teach and inspire us. Each recipient is honored with an awards ceremony, permanent recognition, and a Schack Art Center lifetime membership.
