Art & Soul Featured Artist Nomination
Art & Soul celebrates empowerment through the arts and recognizes over 100 local African American artists. In February 2020, the Arts Council of Indianapolis will host the 24th annual Art & Soul celebration at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. Each year, four artists are chosen to be Featured Artists throughout the month.
Featured Artist Eligibility
An Art & Soul Featured Artist is an African American artist who is professionally unrecognized, but stylistically evolved. An eligible artist:

• Has been working in or pursuing their field for no more than three years.
• Is not currently in high school or pursuing a degree
• Must be able to fully participate in a 3-hour kick-off event in February, capable of performing an hour-long presentation in February, and able to participate in a closing program.

Nominees will be evaluated based on the overall excellence of the artist's work and demonstration of exceptional talent; the artist's commitment to professional growth and their art form; and the artist's ability to contribute to meeting the goals for Art & Soul and enhancing the year's theme for the program. Artists may nominate themselves.
