SUSANA MEYER Creative Arts Award

Opportunities are plentiful in Shout Out for participation. From planning programs, to overseeing arts events, to participating as an artist, to enjoying events as an audience member, we welcome your input. 

For our third season, we inaugurated a monetary artist award that will be given annually and shown during the October festival. The $1,000 award honors Susana Meyer’s Exemplary Work With Artists Throughout Her Career And Her Contributions To The Creative Life Of Saugerties.

On Saturday, April 13, 2019, the first Arts Award was presented to filmmaker Katie Cokinos.  She received a plaque from Town by Board member John Schoonmaker, and a $1,000 check for her film project "Esopus Creek" Friends gathered for the celebratory occasion enlivened by flower arrangements by Dancing Tulip Floral Boutique, tasty tapas concocted by Farzan Nadim and wine donated by Peggy Swartz at Town and Country.  

The date for 2020 proposal submissions for the Susana Arts Award will be announced in the forthcoming months. Watch the Web site, Facebook Page and Instagram for updates.
