The Maya Angelou Artist-in-Residence honor celebrates exceptional artists for combining achievement in the arts and a commitment to improving the human condition.

Award winners will visit Wake Forest to educate and engage both the University and Winston-Salem communities.

“Wake Forest’s motto Pro Humanitate is a calling to use our knowledge, talents and compassion to better the lives of others,” said associate provost for the arts Christina Soriano. “It can mean donating time and resources to our communities or simply a lifelong commitment to pursuing our best self. We look forward to receiving nominations from our faculty and staff of artists who embody this philosophy.”

Nominations may be submitted on the Wake the Arts website by Oct. 15.
