Arts Council of Greater Lansing Presents Applause Awards


The Arts Council of Greater Lansing recently announced its 2019 Applause Award winners at the 40th annual Holiday Glitter event held at the University Club of Michigan State University. Each recipient was presented with a handcrafted award created by local artist Dane Porter.

“Celebrating the achievements of those who are helping to grow and sustain the arts and cultural sector in Greater Lansing is so important,” said Arts Council interim Executive Director Meghan Martin. “We are very appreciative of all our awardees who do so much work in support of the arts, work that often happens behind the scenes or goes unrecognized. That’s why these awards are so important.”

Among aware recipients were Dionne O’Dell, who was honored with the Arts Educator Award, and April Clobes, who was honored with the Ted Sondag Individual Leadership Award.
