Shine the spotlight on an arts organization in your town!

Here's a chance to score national exposure for South Carolina arts and cultural organizations.

Each day's feature organization will be selected by NEA staff members. The nomination guidelines are simple: Who can be nominated?

  • Any arts or culture organization.  (No self nominations please.)
How do I make a nomination? Just send an e-mail to beetep@arts.gov indicating:
