Panelists are thought leaders in the arts industry who are passionate about the positive impact of the arts on the Commonwealth. Panelists span expertise across multiple disciplines and include individual artists; educators; community leaders; museum curators; theatre directors; board leaders; and arts administrators.
Each of the regional and statewide Advisory Panels consists of six to eight members selected by the Commission. The Panelists are chosen for their expertise in the arts, their ability to work with others in a Panel situation, and their willingness to devote the time required to review applications. When selecting panelists, the Commission attempts to balance each Advisory Panel with knowledge of the different arts disciplines and diverse perspectives.
The Commission has different Advisory Panels for several of the varied grant categories.
Nominations must include contact information for the individual nominated for the Advisory Panels and either a bio or a few sentences about the individual’s experience in the arts.
