Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Award of $1,000 to an Indiana artist to recognize exceptional community contributions and achievements related to a traditional art form. The award is intended to honor an individual’s long-term accomplishments within an art form that is rooted in community life. The artist's work may fall into a variety of artistic disciplines, including but not limited to visual arts, crafts, music, dance, and oral traditions.

The Foundation uses the NEA definition of folk and traditional arts for this program: “The folk and traditional arts, which include crafts, dance, music, oral traditions, visual arts, and others, are those that are learned as part of the cultural life of a community whose members share a common ethnic heritage, cultural mores, language, religion, occupation, or geographic region. These traditions are shaped by the aesthetics and values of a shared culture and are passed from generation to generation, most often within family and community through observation, conversation, and practice."
