Governor Brown reinstates Governor's Arts Awards in honor of Arts Commission's 50th Anniversary

In celebration of the uplifting power of art and its value to Oregonians’ quality of life, Governor Kate Brown today announced she is reinstating the Governor’s Arts Awards in honor of the Oregon Arts Commission’s 50th Anniversary. Established in 1977, the once-annual awards have been on hiatus since 2007. A call for nominations is now posted on the Arts Commission website.

Statement on Oregon arts funding

Dear Arts Supporters,

Many of you have reached out to inquire about the importance of national funding to the arts in Oregon. We’d like to take this opportunity to share information on how national and state funding partner to support arts organizations and artists across the state.

We know that funding of arts and culture in Oregon is comprised of many sources of revenue including public, private, individual and corporate giving. It’s safe to say, however, that without public support many arts organizations would be in jeopardy.
