ANN ARBOR – The Ann Arbor Public Art Commission has opened nominations for its newly relaunched annual Golden Paintbrush Awards.
This year’s award aims to recognize community members of all ages and organizations that promote creativity in the city’s public spaces.
“Awards will be given for art that demonstrates collaboration and excellence and, as the commission explains, adds a bit of magic to our daily lives,” the commission announced in a press release.
Eligible art forms include visual, musical and digital arts. All nominations must be submitted by April 30 using this form.
Winners will be selected by a panel of residents and leaders from the arts, business and education communities in Ann Arbor.
According to a press release, their judging criteria will be:
Creativity/competence: 50% (is the project unique, impactful and well executed).
Civic engagement: 25% (how the project involved members of our community).
Visible and sustainable: 25% (is the project prominent and can it be easily maintained).
The Golden Paintbrush Awards recognize and encourage innovative civic engagement and demonstrate an appreciation for the many public art exhibits in Ann Arbor.
The awards were relaunched this year after an eight-year hiatus.
