ANN ARBOR – The Ann Arbor Public Art Commission has opened nominations for its newly revived 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.
“Prizes will be awarded for art that demonstrates collaboration and excellence and, as the commission explains, adds a bit of magic to our daily lives,” the commission said in a press release.
Eligible art forms include visual, music and digital. All applications 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 judgment criteria will be as follows:
Creativity / Competence: 50% (is the project unique, impactful and well executed).
Civic engagement: 25% (how did the project involve members of our community).
Visible and sustainable: 25% (is the project important 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.
Prices were relaunched this year after an eight-year hiatus.
