Using their commitment and experience to serve the Arts

Serving on a Minnesota State Arts Board Advisory Review Panel is an important job.  Panelists are chosen based on their involvement and experience in their art form and represent the geographic diversity of our state.  Their service includes reviewing grant applications/art work samples, discussing the application’s strength and weakness and then ranking and making a recommendation for funding to the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Volunteering to be a panelist is a commitment of time and energy.  The rewards are seeing the newest ideas for arts projects and playing a part in keeping the Arts a strong and vital place to live.

A big “Thank You” to these artists for volunteering to serve our region and the Minnesota State Arts Board.  If being a panelist is something you would like to do, contact Beth Richardson, Advisory Review Panel Coordinator for the MSAB at
