Here at Boise Weekly, we like to focus on the arts scene right here in the City of Trees—but that doesn't mean the rest of Idaho is culturally bereft. From home-spun leather horse saddle decoration to cowboy poetry, the Gem State has arts and culture coming up through the floorboards, and the moment has come for Idahoans to nominate their favorites for the Idaho Commission on the Arts' annual Governor's Awards in the Arts.

These awards recognize Excellence in the Arts, Excellence in Folk & Traditional Arts, Support of the Arts, Support of Arts Education and Excellence in Arts Administration. Nominations should include a reason why the person in question should receive the award, three to five letters of recommendation and supporting materials, like media articles, artist statements and résumés.
