Do you know an outstanding Alaska creative individual? Help us find the next Distinguished Artist! Rasmuson Foundation offers one $40,000 award annually to a mature Alaska artist recognized as among the best in their field.
Thirty-five artist awardees from 21 Alaska communities were selected from a pool of nearly 300 applicants by a national panel of artists and creative community leaders from outside of Alaska. Many of the awardees had never applied before.
Two remote community grocery stores, a small farm as a youth employment opportunity and shelter upgrades in Bethel are among 23 projects moving forward with support from Rasmuson Foundation to benefit Alaskans.
