Maine Arts Awards

October 30, 2018

First ever presented

One of the highlights of the Maine International Conference on the Arts held in September at USM was the presentation of the Maine Arts Awards by Arts EngageME. This is the first time these awards have been presented in Maine. Arts EngageME is an advocacy and support organization for the Maine Arts Commission. It is modeled on the support organizations for many of Maine’s other state cultural agencies, with a directive to increase the Commission’s capacity to advocate and to hold an endowment in support of Maine’s cultural sector.

Emily Isaacson | Artist of the Year presented her award with Severin Beliveau, Larry Rubenstein, and Julie Richard
