Arts Recognition Award for Contributions in Support of the Arts
The Richland Arts Commission accepts nominations for two annual awards to recognize local contributions made in support of the arts. These awards are intended to distinguish two recipients for their outstanding contribution and support of the arts in Richland, Washington. The awards are presented to one individual and to one organization (for profit or not-for-profit) annually. The award is made for the year prior.
Art Recognition Nominations
The Award for Contributions in Support of the Arts is informed by members of the public. The Richland Arts Commission asks for citizens to tell us who deserves recognition this year or for their dedication to the arts in previous years.
Thank you to all who submitted nominations for 2018. The nomination period has closed.
Nominations for 2019 awards will be open December 16, 2019 and must be received digitally or postmarked by Friday, January 31, 2020. The Richland Arts Commission will consider submittals at their February 2020 workshop. The award recipients will be presented with an award at a Richland City Council meeting in Spring as schedules allow.
Note: Recipients who have been recognized within the last five years are not eligible.
