2016 Artist Grantees

Share this article with your network:

Creative Pinellas honors our County’s working artists, their accomplishments to date and supports their efforts to advance their careers with the promise of future achievement in their chosen medium in its widest sense.

Creative Pinellas was excited to launch two new grant programs in 2016 – one for individual artists and one for arts and cultural organizations in Pinellas County.

Our grantees were very active during the duration of the grant period and captured and shared their activities online.
