Instructional Specialist Pamela Booker was recently awarded a $12,000 NJ State Council on the Arts Prose Fellow Award. Booker was one of more than 70 awardees selected from nearly 700 applications to the available State Council grants.

The Fellowships are competitive awards to New Jersey artists in 12 rotating disciplines granted solely on independent peer panel assessment of work samples. The anonymous process is focused on artistic quality, and awards may be used to help artists produce new work and advance their careers. New Jersey artists applied for awards this year in the categories of digital/electronic, film/video, interdisciplinary, painting, printmaking/drawing/book arts, and prose. This program is carried out in partnership with Mid Atlantic Arts.
