Kevin Rohde was one 66 artists to receive a 2021 Maryland State Arts Council Independent Artist Award for his ceramic sculpture. This year’s awardees were chosen through a public panel process from a pool of 540 applicants.
“As Maryland continues to recover from the global pandemic, it is important to recognize just how important a role the arts play in our lives,” said First Lady Yumi Hogan. “As we look to brighter days ahead, we know the arts community will be there to help us reflect, heal, and celebrate. All the artists in Maryland contribute to this creative ecosystem. I want to congratulate all the awardees for their incredible contributions to the arts and our communities.”
