Artistic Achievement Award – Literary Arts
Recognizes excellence and accomplishment in literary form.
Because the arts can provide the best, most honest, both everconstant and ever-evolving expressions of human longing, aspiration, and insight. Because the arts allow us to communicate with each other intimately as individuals, as communities, and as cultures. Because the arts also allow us to communicate with each other as they communicate among themselves, as when music matches itself with literature, or dance lends physical movement to painting, or theater and film rub elbows with all the other arts.
