2017 Arts Grants Recipients

The Mobile Arts Council received a total of 19 applications for our 2017 Arts Grants - submitted from various arts organizations, crafters, graphic designers, photographers, musicians, theaters, visual artists, and videographers. With great difficulty, our panel of professional artists and arts educators selected the following four recipients:

- Karen Bullock (Photographer)

- Nancy Goodman (Quilter)

- Peter Kohrman (Musician/Composer)

- Mystic Order of the Jazz Obsessed (Nonprofit Jazz Organization)

The individual recipients will use their $1,000 grants to further their careers as artists, as well as give back to the Mobile community. MOJO will use their funding to provide an outreach program that takes Jazz mini-concerts and educational lessons to children ages 6 – 13 at the Mobile Public Library this summer.  

We want to thank everyone that applied for their time and dedication to their art, and for their ongoing support of MAC! Through this experience, we have gained a higher awareness and appreciation of the many talented artists in our community. Going forward, MAC strives to make this an ongoing service we provide to the Mobile area each year.

If you have any questions regarding our arts grants, please contact Program Director Lucy Gafford at lgafford@mobilearts.org.
