Accolades honoring outstanding
artists who have inspired our
entire community.

 

JM artists regularly receive awards and recognitions for their inspiring work — including annual awards presented by school arts departments and honors announced by other organizations across our community and beyond. Many of them are selected as JMArts Scholars to continue their study during the summer, often at weeklong intensive workshops on university campuses. Others are honored for excellence in other ways.
