Nevada Arts Council Announces 2024 Literary and Performing Arts Fellows

[Carson City, Nevada] – The Nevada Arts Council has announced the 2024 Literary and Performing Arts Fellows. Since 1989, the Nevada Arts Council has recognized 232 fellows in Visual, Performing, and Literary Arts who demonstrate excellence in their field.

The Fellowship program was designed to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence by providing financial support to outstanding artists. Nevada Arts Council Fellowship grants can be awarded at any stage of the artists’ career development. By recognizing and rewarding artistic accomplishments instead of educational experience, these fellows promote public awareness and appreciation of how Nevada artists contribute to the economic, civic, cultural, educational and health benefits in Nevada and its communities.

For 2024, the Nevada Arts Council is proud to announce six Literary and six Performing Arts Fellows.

Our 2024 Literary Arts Fellows are:

Justin Evans, Shaun Griffin, Chris Lanier, Mark Maynard, Kathy Nelson, and Amanda Skenandore.

Our 2024 Performing Arts Fellows are:

Jennifer Bellor, RED (Jared Crawford), Cari Cunningham, Troy Heard, Yunior Lopez Fernandez, and Carol Scott.
