We are pleased to announce that HOF is one of ten recipients of the 2018 Governor’s Awards for the Arts and Humanities. We were chosen to receive the award, which is presented by the Office of the Governor in partnership with Georgia Council for the Arts and Georgia Humanities, for creating “innovative programs that use the arts and humanities to enhance Georgia’s civic and cultural vitality and that stand as a national model.”
Historic Oakland Foundation Board of Directors members Mary Woodlan and May B. Hollis attended the ceremony at the Georgia State Capitol on Tuesday and received the award from Governor Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal.
Other recipients include Athens Ciné, Pearl Cleage, James S. Crisp, Janice Faircloth, Friends of Historic Jekyll Island, Azira Hill, Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection, National Black Arts Festival, and Ellen Thompson.
We are grateful to Georgia Council for the Arts and Georgia Humanities for their support.
