FRANKFORT, Ky. — Do you know someone or an organization deserving of the Commonwealth’s highest honor in the arts? The Kentucky Arts Council is accepting nominations for the 2012 Governor’s Awards in the Arts until March 1. The awards, which will be presented at a public ceremony in October 2012, recognize individuals and organizations with extraordinary achievements and contributions in the arts.
The nine award categories (Artist, Business, Community Arts, Education, Folk Heritage, Government, Media, Milner and National) recognize the broad range of support the arts enjoy in Kentucky.
The arts council encourages any individual, organization or business to make nominations. Recipients must be living and a resident of Kentucky (with the exception of the National Award).
