The Cleveland Arts Prize is the oldest award of its kind in the United States. For more than 45 years, the organization has recognized individual local artists and arts advocates with special awards. Currently the Cleveland Arts Prize awards $10,000 to two emerging artists, two mid-career artists and one lifetime achievement award (as well as two special prizes that don’t include cash awards). Each year, artists must be nominated by a member of the community to be eligible for the Cleveland Arts Prize. A new storyteller series, CAPtalks, is designed to create a more intimate relationship between artists and their audience. CAP Trustee Daniel Gray-Kontar hosts the first CAPtalks event with special guest Robert P. Madison, FAIA (CAP 2000) and storytellers Kristen Cliffel (CAP 2016), Johnny Coleman (CAP 2003), Ernie Krivda (CAP 2009), Michael Oatman (CAP 2011) and Dr. Mary E. Weems (CAP 2015). The event is free, but donations are accepted. Admission is free. (Usmani)
