Nominations are now being accepted for the Richard D. Bass Achievement Award for 1989, a $5,000 unrestricted cash fellowship to be awarded to a mid-career artist in the field of music or dance who is creatively producing and is making a significant impact in his or her field, either through single projects or activities, or cumulatively over a period of time.

Candidates may be either current residents or native Utahns who have made significant contributions elsewhere.In 1986, Dick Bass was recognized by the state of Utah for being the first person to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents, and the oldest, at 55, to climb Mount Everest. The award commemorates that honor, and perpetuates the concept that outstanding efforts of personal achievement should be publically recognized and rewarded. The award is jointly sponsored by Bass and the Snowbird Institute of the Arts and Humanities.

Nominations will be accepted now through March 24, and the award will be presented April 28. For information or application forms, contact the Snowbird Institute, Snowbird, UT 84092, or call (801) 521-6040, ext. 4150.
