Artists are at the heart of Maryland's thriving creative sector, and communities value artists for the vitality, cultural traditions and economic impact they support throughout the state.
Each year, MSAC recognizes the outstanding artistic achievements of artists from across Maryland with awards of $1,000, $3,000 and $6,000. These awards honor artists, showcasing their importance to the cultural fabric of our state, supporting their creative potential and strengthening their impact on the local level.
Through a process administered by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF), awardees are chosen, based solely on artistic merit, by an out-of-state jury of discipline-specific experts. All The Info You Need Is RIght Here!
