Columbus, Ohio – The Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council) and the Lincoln Theatre Association are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2014 Larry James “Expanding Your Horizons” Fellowship Awards.

The Arts Council’s Fellowship program, established in 1986, recognizes outstanding Franklin County artists. Since the inception of the program, more than 210 awards have been made in a variety of disciplines, including visual arts, crafts, film and video, creative writing, music composition and choreography/movement arts.

This unique pilot program, which is expected to continue, gives jazz musicians an opportunity to deepen their skills and hone their craft through in-depth trainings and workshops. Recipients completed a pre-determined curriculum to earn their award. The participants were selected through the Backstage at the Lincoln series and invited to participate as the inaugural class of fellows.

A reception in honor of the 2014 Fellowship recipients will be held at the Lincoln Theatre on Tuesday, December 9.
