Here they are! The 2014 Viola Awards for Excellence in the Arts and Sciences were created by ceramic artist, Rena Hamilton. Each year, the Flagstaff Arts Council puts out a request for proposals for Flagstaff artists to create that year’s Viola Awards. The primary material for the awards changes each year as well: in year one, it was glass (and then again in year five). In year two, it was clay as it was this year. In year three, the awards were made of metal, and in year four, they were made of wood.
