                       Jingle Feldman Individual Artist Award 2009

The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa is the champion for area arts and culture. Diverse
education programs advance its mission to inspire creativity, foster appreciation, promote
lifelong learning, enhance the quality of individual lives, and contribute economic benefit to the
greater community.

professional development. An award of $5,000 will be granted to a professional artist who is
living and working in the Tulsa metropolitan area, and who is contributing to Tulsa’s art scene.
