The Arkansas Arts Council will host a virtual program at 6 p.m. Oct. 6 on Facebook and YouTube to celebrate this year's Individual Artist Fellowship awards recipients.
Individual Artist Fellowship awards are unconditional, non-matching awards made directly to individual Arkansas artists. An independent panel annually selects nine artists in rotating categories to receive fellowships of $4,000 each. This year, artists from around the state submitted applications for the fellowships in three categories: cinematic arts, poetry and contemporary crafts.
The Arts Council will recognize and honor Fellowship recipients in a virtual evening program happening in conjunction with ArtLinks 2021, the virtual, statewide arts conference sponsored by the Arkansas Arts Council.
