ANNOUNCING THE NEW ANNUAL ART AWARD: ARTS INNOVATION
The City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture announces a partnership with Innovate Marquette SmartZone in the creation of a new award for the 2022 Annual Art Awards; the Arts Innovation Award. After 25 years of honoring the Marquette creative community, it is apparent that recognition is required for those who think outside the box and take risks in their process.
The Arts Innovation Award recognizes individuals who have exceptional creative thinking in their work and evidence of expansion in their perspectives and practice. Nominees should have demonstrated new methods, use of new technology, unique collaboration, unexpected use of materials, and develop new processes and collaborations that foster inclusivity and diversity.
The Arts Innovation Award is open to traditional and contemporary artists of all mediums and forms; or could recognize an individual or business that purposefully incorporated artists or creative techniques to their process or product design.
The nomination period for the Arts Innovation Award is open and will end Tuesday, September 6th. The nomination form can be found at www.mqtcompass.com/annual-art-awards or HERE
The 25th Annual Art Awards ceremony will occur Saturday October 8th, 2022 and is free and open to the public to attend. For more information or questions, please contact the City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture
