Nominations Sought for Governor's Awards in the Arts

September 1, 2003 is the deadline to have nominations prepared for the 2003 Governor's Awards in the Arts, which will be presented in early 2004 at the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort. Nine separate categories of awards are open for nomination from any citizen of Kentucky for the Governor's Awards in the Arts, the commonwealth's highest honor in the arts. Historically the first and still the most prestigious of these awards is the Milner Award which is given annually to a Kentuckian who has made outstanding philanthropic, artistic, or other contributions to the arts. Other awards include the Artist Award, National Award, Business Award, Community Arts Award, Education Award, Government Award, Media Award, and the Folk Heritage Award.

Linda Fifield of McKee, Kentucky has been commissioned to create the 2004 awards. Her work is hand turned wooden vessels with intricately woven glass seed beads, using an ancient netting stitch. The photo does not represent the actual pieces that will be awarded but is exemplary of her work.

A candidate for a Governor's Award in the Arts must be a Kentucky organization or an individual residing in Kentucky, with the exception of the National Award which goes to a native son or daughter achieving national or international acclaim. Recipients are nominated to the Kentucky Arts Council, which coordinates the nomination and selection process and presents the recommendations to the Governor for final approval. For detailed Guidelines and Nomination Forms are available on the Web. For further information contact Dan Strauss at 1-888-833-2787 ext. 4804.
