Catherine Meredith and Alice Blumenfeld Receive Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Awards

Congratulations to assistant professor of dance Catherine Meredith and adjunct dance faculty member Alice Blumenfeld on receiving Individual Excellence Awards in the choreography category from the Ohio Arts Council.

Meredith and Blumenfeld's grants are part of $375,000 in grant funding dispersed by the Ohio Arts Council (OAC) for Individual Excellence Awards in 2022. Individual Excellence Awards are given in the categories of choreography, criticism, fiction and non-fiction, music composition, playwriting/screenplays, and poetry.

Individual Excellence Awards are peer recognition of a creative artist’s body of work that exemplifies their specific discipline and advances the larger artistic community. These awards support artists' growth and development and recognize their work in Ohio and beyond.

Using an open panel review process focused on the exceptional merit of an artist’s past body of work, Individual Excellence Award funding gives artists the resources to experiment and explore their art forms, develop skills, and advance their careers.

“Ohio is a creative state, and we are fortunate that a wealth of talented artists call it their home,” said OAC Executive Director Donna S. Collins. “The Ohio Arts Council is proud to support the outstanding artistic accomplishments evidenced by this year’s Individual Excellence Award winners.”
