Mission Statement

The Cleveland Arts Prize identifies, selects and publicly honors those creative artists whose original work has made Northeast Ohio a more exciting place to live, and whose accomplishments have set a standard of excellence to which other artists can aspire. Artists are essential to a healthy community, and the arts need a supportive environment and an engaged public. Therefore, it is also the mission of The Cleveland Arts Prize to recognize the contributions of individuals and organizations that have expanded the community?s participation in the arts and helped make the region more hospitable to creative artistic expression.

Program 1

The Arts Prize awards artists in four disciplines: music composition and choreography, visual arts, literature and design. Juries comprised of professionals in the various disciplines review nominations and select the most deserving nominees. The group of jurors as a whole selects finalists for the emerging artist award, for two mid-career awards, and for life-time achievement awards. The special prize committee reviews the candidates for the Martha Joseph Prize and the Robert honoring leadership in the arts. Their suggestions, along with the juries? recommendations, go before the board of trustees, who chooses the winners. The winners are celebrated and decorated at an Annual Event. Endowed scholarships in the areas of dance and visual arts are also awarded. One scholarship is awarded to a high school student from the region annually in collaboration with Cleveland Scholarship Program.
