2020 Jersey City Arts Awardee selections have been made.
I am very excited to let you know that you have been chosen as the winner of this year’s Visual Arts Award!
This unexpected honor is life affirming for me as an artist.
Nominations were open to the public throughout the summer and then the individual Committees narrowed the choices to 2-3 nominees. The Jersey City Arts Council, Board of Directors then voted on the final awardees. Each Committee and the Board base their selection on artistic excellence and community impact.
I am truly humbled. Thank you, Jersey City.
Even though we are separate, we are not apart. The Awards Celebration will be virtual on December 1st at 7pm as YouTube Premiere.
