Juniper Award for Art
The Juniper Award for Art recognizes a local artist's commitment to their bold path and aims to alleviate financial constraints so artists can spend more time cultivating their imagination and fearlessness.
Please note: the number of nominations per nominee is not a factor in the selection process.
"For fun, I painted, sketched, and carved all my life, but I did not choose art as a career. My sister did. My appreciation for the working artist is rooted in her career. I watched my sister turn a skillset and passion into work, enhancing our community with talent, ideas, and beauty. I want to give artists like her some financial breathing room to spend more time on their art."
