Frederick Arts Council's Sky Stage Recognized By The Americans For The Arts As One Of The Country's Best Public Arts Projects

Frederick Arts Council's Sky Stage Recognized By The Americans For The Arts As One Of The Country's Best Public Arts Projects


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On June 15th, the Frederick Arts Council's innovative combined public art project and outdoor amphitheater Sky Stage was honored as one of the best public art projects in the nation at Americans for the Arts' Public Art Network conference in San Francisco.

The Public Art Network Year in Review award employs a jury selection process to annually recognize outstanding public art projects that represent the most compelling works created in the nation during the prior year. Hundreds of project applications are reviewed and up to 50 are selected to highlight trends and accomplishments for the field. Selection criteria included creativity, concept, innovation, responsiveness and success See listing here: http://www.americansforthearts.org/by-program/networks-and-councils/public-art-network/public-art-year-in-review-database/sky-stage.

The survey of outstanding projects reflects a broad range of artistic responses and approaches to the challenge of creating art in the public realm. Year in Review selections are among the nation's most innovative and imaginative art projects that fulfill their public goals and are inspiring to their intended audience, which includes artists, commissioning agencies and their communities. Selections are to demonstrate ways artists can engage site, community, and social spaces.

"We are overjoyed at this very tangible confirmation that Sky Stage is truly magical and stands among the most effective and engaging public artworks in our entire national community," said Louise Kennelly, Executive Director of the Frederick Arts Council. "We thank our local community in Frederick City and County for their investment and support, and we look forward to collaborating with our friends and neighbors on future projects which will continue to cement Frederick's place nationally as a creative exemplar. We hope to provide more platforms for talented artists such as Sky Stage creator Heather Clark."

Sky Stage, designed by artist Heather Clark, is open for its Spring/Summer 2017 season with a variety of arts and holistic programming. It recently earned a Community Leadership Award from Frederick's Historic Preservation Commission, and afeature in The Washington Post's Going Out Guide for its innovative imagining of a community gathering space.
