2015 Governor's Arts Awards
On October 21, 2015, the Governor's Arts Awards recipients were announced by Governor Maggie Hassan during a ceremony and reception at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, hosted by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts.
The Arts Council received seventeen nominations for the 2015 Governor's Arts Awards. Recipients in six categories were designated to receive 2015 Governor's Arts Awards. The awards are typically presented every two years to recognize outstanding, sustained accomplishments in arts education, arts patronage, arts support by a town or city, cultural access leadership, distinguished arts leadership, and lifetime achievement as artists.
Each recipient received an award created by artist Andre Belanger of Berlin, NH. He was commissioned to create the award based on the eagle atop the State House dome.
Funds for the 2015 Governor's Arts Awards were generously donated by private contributors.
