The Governor’s Arts Awards program signifies the important relationship between government and the arts. The arts combine vision and creativity while enriching society’s cultural horizons. Established in 1988, the Governor’s Arts Awards recognize those who have made noteworthy contributions to, or achieved artistic excellence in, the state of Mississippi. The awards event is presented each year by the Mississippi Arts Commission in partnership with the Governor’s Office.
