“From generations past to the present we recognize that all artists have made a difference in our lives and shaping our community. For nearly 60 years, we know that the Cleveland Arts Prize has made a difference to those who have been awarded this special honor. It is extended to emerging artists, mid career artists and lifetime dedication to excellence. The Cleveland Arts Prize needs your support to continue its mission. The funds provided by your donation have a direct relationship to the dollar amount of awards we are able to provide to qualified individuals. Whatever you are able to contribute will help insure that artists in Northeast Ohio continued to be recognized and honored. Remember, your donation is 100% tax deductible.”
