Annie Awards

In 2000, the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County began recognizing six different “Annie Award” winners for their lasting, significant, and inspiring contribution to an art form, an arts organization and/or to the wider community of Anne Arundel County. This year marks the 15th Annual presentation of the prestigious Arts award honoring one member of the community in each of the 8 categories- Literary Arts, Visual Arts, Arts Patron, Performing Arts, Arts Educator, Lifetime Achievement, Arts Philanthropist, and Historic Arts.



Thank you to all who joined us for this year’s Annie Awards Ceremony!
