The City of Culver City is Launching its Artist Laureate Program

A Culver City Artist Laureate will be selected for a two-year appointment January 2020 - December 2021. 

The City of Culver City recognizes the many creative artists who are committed to developing their art forms and enriching our community with their exhibits, performances, presentations, and service. 

The City will select for a two-year appointment an individual artist from one of three arts discipline categories – fine and visual arts, performing arts, and literary arts – to serve as a cultural ambassador who will raise community consciousness to a greater appreciation of the arts within Culver City. 

The Artist Laureate Award will provide access, recognition, and a stipend of $8,000 in support of the artist. The award will recognize artistic excellence, support the continuing development of the artist’s work, and spotlight the important role individual artists play in contributing to a vibrant community, enriching the city’s creative economy, and positively impacting the quality of life for people of all ages.

The Artist Laureate will serve as a cultural ambassador for the City of Culver City.
