The MSAC provides opportunities for artists through grant funding, technical assistance and opportunities to engage with communities and develop professional relationships.
The Maryland State Arts Council’s competitive Individual Artists Award (IAA) recognizes the value of artists and their work to the cultural vitality of Maryland. The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation administers awards of $1,000, $3,000 or $6,000, which are recommended by an out-of-state jury that reviews unidentified submissions solely on the basis of artistic merit.
The IAA Program reviews a total of 18 artistic disciplines, which are separated into three competition groups that are awarded once every three years.
