The Ronna Bucci and Dr. Charles Dietz Artist’s Award is presented in memory of Ronna Bucci, a young artist, and Dr. Dietz, the longtime Director of the Zanesville Art Center. The award is given from the Ronna Bucci and Dr. Charles Dietz Art Endowment Fund at the Muskingum County Community Foundation (MCCF), which provided initial gifts to the fund, along with the Bucci family, Dr. Dietz, the Beaux Arts Club and several other community members. The Artist’s Award is a monetary grant of $500 to be used by the artist to further his or her career as an artist. It may be used for supplies, materials, exhibition fees, seminars, conferences and other activities that may aid the artist. Artists who live in Muskingum County or are members of the Zanesville Appalachian Arts Project (ZAAP) are eligible to apply for the award. Current college and high school students are not eligible to apply.
Completed applications must be received by the Muskingum County Community Foundation by 5 p.m. EDT November 13, 2020.
