The Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) has announced that $225,000 has been awarded to 78 Maryland artists through the 2018 Individual Artist Awards (IAA). This year’s awardees were chosen from a group of 367 applicants and represent some of the state’s leading playwrights, craft makers, photographers, and non-classical music composers and performers. Each year, MSAC recognizes the outstanding artistic achievements of artists from across Maryland to honor their work and showcase their importance to the cultural fabric of our state, supporting their creative potential and strengthening their impact on the local level.
Through a process administered by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF), awardees are chosen, based solely on artistic merit, by an out-of-state jury of discipline-specific experts.
