Governors Arts AwardGovernors Arts Award logo with eagle design s

New Hampshire is a state with a breadth of artistic energy and individuals who, with their personal decisions and commitment, make a difference to the quality of life in their communities and in our state.

The State Arts Council, in cooperation with the Governors Office, periodically takes the opportunity to acknowledge these contributions through the presentation of Governors Arts Awards. Each award category allows us to bring attention to the work of both nominees and award recipients in promoting the excellence, growth and availability of the arts in New Hampshire.
