Governor's Arts Awards

The Governor's Arts Awards were established in 1977 to recognize individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the cultural life of Oregon. From presentations in the Capitol Rotunda in Salem to multimedia productions celebrating award recipients in Portland, Eugene and Newport, the Governor's Arts Awards are an annual celebration of the arts across the state.
