Help Us Find a Treasure!

Arkansas Arts Council - Monday, September 19, 2016

What do a potter, a beader, a wood sculptor, a basket maker, an egg artist, a stained glass artist, a fiddle maker, a log cabin maker, a handmade wooden plane maker, a chair maker, a quilt maker, and a bladesmith have in common? Answer: They are all past recipients of our Arkansas Living Treasure award.

You can help us find the 2017 Arkansas Living Treasure by nominating a traditional craft artist. We are seeking an Arkansas artist who excels in the creation of a traditional craft and who actively preserves and advances his or her craft through community outreach and educating others. Please help us celebrate traditional craft in Arkansas by nominating an artist by Friday, October 21. Click HERE to nominate online or download a nomination form. For more information, contact Robin McClea at (501) 324-9348 or email [email protected].
