Just a reminder that the deadline for Rasmuson Individual Artist Awards approaches. The deadline has been moved from September of each year to March 1, which is a mere 14 days away.
Last year the Rasmuson Foundation awarded more than $60,000 to Anchorage-based artists alone through this award program.
The awards are geared toward mid-career or mature artists working in the disciplines of choreography, folk and traditional art forms, crafts, literary arts or performance art.
To qualify, artists must live and work in Alaska.
Updated guidelines and application forms are available at www.rasmuson.org.
