Former Pier One Theatre director Lance Petersen has received the Governor’s Awards for the Arts and Humanities for individual artist.
The Alaska Humanities Forum and the Alaska State Council on the Arts announced the recipients earlier this month.
The Governor’s Awards for the Arts and Humanities is an annual partnership between the Alaska Humanities Forum, the Alaska State Council on the Arts (ASCA), the Alaska Arts and Culture Foundation, and the Office of the Governor to recognize and honor noteworthy contributions to the arts and humanities in Alaska.
The awards recognize Alaskan artists, educators, historians, and institutions for their enduring impact on people and communities across our state.
The Governor’s Awards ceremony will be held in Juneau on Jan. 26 and is open to the public to attend.
