Following an inspiring and hopeful message from Mayor Joe Hogsette, the Arts Council announced the 2018 Robert D. Beckmann, Jr. Emerging Artist Fellows and the Arts Journalism Fellows, and recognized the 10th round of Creative Renewal Fellows. The 2017 ARTI Award recipients were recognized for excellence in service to the Arts Community and the creation of a new artist grant, the DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award, was announced.
