Garber recognized for service


Sandy Garber of Farragut recently served on the Tennessee Arts Commission’s 2005 Citizen Advisory Panel in Nashville.

Panelists meet once a year to offer advice on program planning and to review grant applications. In addition, they serve as year-round resources to the Arts Commission staff as advocates for the arts in their communities.


The 2005 meetings were held throughout the month of April. Panels are divided into different categories, such as arts advancement and expansion, arts education, community arts, folklife, literary arts, visual arts, music, dance, theater, inter-arts and Rural Arts. Panel members are appointed to two-year terms and generally consist of professional artists, arts administrators, patrons, sponsors, educators and community leaders.

“Our citizen panels consist of dedicated and informed individuals from across the state. These individuals provide an invaluable service to the Commission and are critical to the grants-making process,” said Rich Boyd, executive director of the Commission. “The caliber of individuals serving on the panels is impressive. We are so appreciative of their time and effort. Most of the individuals have strong backgrounds in or are active supporters of the arts. They made a tremendous contribution,” added Boyd.

Panelists must be nominated. They are required to include a statement of their individual qualifications to serve on the advisory panel. Nominees are contacted to confirm their interest and commitment to attend specific meetings and their willingness to serve as arts advocates in their communities. Panelists are expected to make a commitment to participate in an area orientation and to attend the grant applications review meeting.
