The Artist's Innovation Award is made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Jessie Wilber and Frances Senska Individual Artist Award is specifically designated for a ceramics artist, and was established by a private gift to the arts council from Stacy Hamm and Sage Walden.

 

In order to foster environments where the innovation and creativity of artists are valued and celebrated, this program rewards Montana artists who have demonstrated:

 

   1. Innovation in their work and artwork

   2. Originality and dedication in their creative pursuits

   3. A marked capacity for self-direction

 


 

 

How we define innovation


Innovation is the act of introducing something new or different to further an artist’s vision and practice. This can mean new methods, applications, perspectives, elements, forms, materials, technology integration, project concepts and/or processes that result from study, experimentation or experiences. Your innovation can be from any era of your artistic career. Your innovation can be a personal evolution, or an evolution for the field, or both. Innovation is applicable to traditional art and contemporary art.
