Which Alaska artist stands out to you as a particularly amazing and influential creative force? Nominations close Saturday for our 2019 Distinguished Artist, a singular honor with a $40,000 award reserved for a mature artist.
To be considered, an artist must have created an extensive independent body of work representing a life-long investigation and maturation of their personal creativity. They must have decades of experience creating art and contributing to advancement of arts and culture in Alaska. Artists may work in any artistic discipline.
