(KFVS) - The Missouri Arts Council is looking for arts heroes—people, organizations, and communities who have made significant contributions to the state’s cultural wellbeing—to receive the 2014 Missouri Arts Awards.
The council is seeking nominations in six categories: Arts Education, Arts Organization, Creative Community, Individual Artist, Leadership in the Arts and Philanthropy.
The Creative Community category can be made up of groups from arts districts, business districts, tax districts, and neighborhood associations. Nominees in the Philanthropy category may be non-Missouri residents as long as they benefit a nonprofit Missouri arts organization. Nominees in the other five categories must be current Missouri residents or Missouri-based organizations or communities.
The award recipients will be announced in October and the ceremony will be held on February 5, 2014, in the Capitol Rotunda in Jefferson City.
