BATAVIA – The Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council is seeking nominations to recognize artists and others who promote cultural activities in Genesee and Orleans counties.

GO Art! about five years ago created the Genean award for GENesee and OrlEANs Counties, which “recognize a few of the amazing people and organizations we have within our counties,” GO Art! said.

The nomination deadline is April 5. GO Art! wants to recognize the following:

  • Organization of the Year – This award honors a not-for-profit or for-profit arts organization for its achievements during the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021.
  • Individual Artist of the Year – This award honors an individual artist in any discipline for their achievements during the pandemic or a career-long body of work.
  • Supporter (of the cultural sector) of the Year – The award honors an individual or an organization outside of the arts and cultural sector for their work directly aiding in the arts and/or cultural sector.
