2017 JAYS Ballot

Once a year at The Jasper Project we like to celebrate the artists in the greater Midlands arts community who have enjoyed that very special year—the kind of year that reputations and legacies are made on, when career goals are met and both the artists and their supporting communities realize that they are growing and excelling, moving to new heights in their artistic journey. 

To recognize these special artists we ask their colleagues and fans to nominate them along with a list of their accomplishments over the past year. The top three in each category—music, theatre, visual arts, and literary arts (we also ask for nominations in dance, but this is the second year in a row that we have not had enough nominations to make an award)—are selected, notified, and asked to complete their nomination by sharing with us any accomplishments, accolades, or artistic activities they have enjoyed over the past year. 

Now it’s your turn. 

From now until midnight on December 1st, it is your job not only to vote for your choices for the 2017 JAYS—Jasper Artists of the Year—but to campaign for your choices as well. Let’s celebrate this community of exciting artistic growth and what it means to all of us to live in it.  We can all be advocates of the Jasper Artists of the Year.
