[Augusta, GA] The Greater Augusta Arts Council announced today that the Nomination Forms are now open for the 2018 Annual Arts Awards, which celebrate individuals and organizations that advance the arts in Augusta. The Arts Awards were established to recognize outstanding talent, exceptional initiative and leadership within Augusta’s vibrant arts community.
In addition to the 6 awards currently distributed, the Arts Council is pleased to announce the addition of a new award: The Kath Girdler Engler Public Art Award.

It will recognize those who are most committed to this important element of our community.
