Commission on Cultural Development: ARTober Subcommittee


What is ARTober?

In 2015, the City of Bangor designated the month of October as the “Month of the Arts,” officially celebrating the diverse and exciting creative culture in the Queen City. The month of October is dedicated to showcasing our rich and various local artists and art organizations. 

Bangor Arts Award Nomination Form

The third annual Bangor Arts Award for an individual or entity that embodies or supports the vitality and creativity of the city of Bangor’s art community will be announced at the ARTober opening event in early October 2024. The winner will receive a $1,000 cash award and recognition at Bangor City Hall. The City of Bangor’s Commission on Cultural Development (CCD) is seeking nominations for an individual (including themself) or organization that participates in, has influence on, or supports the arts in Bangor. Nominees may work in or in support of any artistic medium, including, but not limited to, visual arts, music, performing arts, or written art. 

The Bangor Arts Award will be adjudicated by a panel assembled by the ARTober Subcommittee of the CCD to evaluate applications. This panel will consist of one commissioner from the CCD and at least two third-party members of the Bangor arts community. The Bangor Arts Award winner may be a professional or an amateur artist in any artistic medium. To be eligible to receive the award, individual nominees must live or work in Bangor, and a nominated organization must be based in Bangor.
