What are the MartinArts Awards? Since 2003, the MartinArts Awards have been a signature event of MartinArts honoring outstanding artistic, voluntary, and philanthropic achievement in Martin County, which inspire a passion for and participation in the arts in our community.
Who is recognized at the MartinArts Awards? Honorary Awards are selected by the MartinArts Board of Directors to represent a legacy of commitment to things such as leadership, arts education, philanthropy, and lifetime achievement. Nominated Categories are divided into Professional Artist and Student Artist (High School Seniors only) and represent the visual, performing and literary arts disciplines. The awards are presented to an individual in each category with a proven record of artistic excellence, outstanding civic responsibility, and whose leadership has improved the quality of life in our community through the arts.
