Award of $2,500 to a USA individual arts leader in eligible states or territories for exceptional leadership in an arts related field. Nominees will have demonstrated noteworthy dedication to arts expression and worked to expand access to the arts. Nominations are encouraged for active arts leaders from all career stages (early-, mid-, and late-career) and from all areas or disciplines in the arts industry in Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The Alan Cooper Leadership in the Arts Award honors the legacy of an arts leader who has made outstanding contributions to the arts through extraordinary leadership. The Award seeks to recognize individuals who continue Cooper’s legacy of leadership in the arts sector.
Mid Atlantic Arts believes that leadership takes many forms and is practiced at all career levels: from emerging leaders to late-career leaders. It is the ability to create, give voice to, and execute a vision and purpose while empowering others and fostering the exchange of ideas. Leadership is not measured in years, budget, or scale; but is expressed by the depth and the breadth of an individual’s impact on their community, be it local, regional, or beyond.
The Alan Cooper Leadership in the Arts Award recognizes an individual(s) who has demonstrated visionary leadership; whose work has dismantled barriers and inequities in order to expand access to the arts; whose purpose-driven service and authentic, empathetic engagement with their community has affected exceptional and meaningful impact. Though not required for eligibility, Mid Atlantic Arts is particularly interested in recognizing an arts leader who has made significant advances in the areas of public-private partnerships and international cultural exchange.
