What : The Lexington Council for the Arts proudly announces the acceptance of nominations for a new award –the Breakthrough Artist of the Year in partnership with Voices on the Green, a Lexington non-profit bringing local area speakers in the arts to our community.
A breakthrough artist is defined as an individual or group that is in need of funding to achieve a new level of performance in their chosen area of talent. The cash award of $500 will be presented to the winner in September this year. This is a local initiative, independent of the MCC annual awards grant process.
Lexington Council for the Arts will choose a single artist or group that best demonstrates a need for funding to achieve a “breakthrough” in their ambition to become a recognized artist in the community.
When : Nominations via Call-in or online submission will be starting from December 8, 2018 through February 5, 2019.
