Maryland Masters Award

Comptroller Peter Franchot created a new award program aimed at recognizing youth who have displayed extraordinary artistic skills and a vision for Marylandís future. Dubbed the Maryland Masters Award, the initiative will celebrate the achievements of Marylanders through the arts and showcase the work of students from Kindergarten through 12th grade in the Comptrollerís Office in Annapolis.

The Comptroller has reached out to public school superintendents of all 23 counties and Baltimore City, requesting that they identify one piece of artwork from an elementary, middle and high school student within their jurisdiction. The selected students, their families and school officials will be invited to join Comptroller Franchot and other state officials for an official art exhibit unveiling ceremony, where the students will receive the Maryland Masters Award.

Following the debut, the art will remain on display for two months. The student artwork will join a collection of original paintings by one of Comptroller Franchotís favorite artists, Herman Maril. Called an American modernist, Maril was born in Baltimore and served as a professor at University of Maryland for more than 30 years.
