The City of Sonoma’s Cultural and Fine Arts Commission is seeking nominations for the 2023 Sonoma Treasure Artist of the Year Award. First awarded in 1983, the Sonoma Treasure Artist is selected and recognized for outstanding achievement in a chosen artistic medium including the performing, visual, theatrical, literary, and craft arts, and for their service and involvement within the community.

The public is invited to nominate, in writing, individuals they feel would be worthy of the Sonoma Treasure Artist honor. Letters of nomination must include a description of the artist’s work and contributions to the community, and a rationale for why that person should be named Treasure Artist of the Year.

Nominations will be accepted in the office of the City Clerk, No. 1 The Plaza, Sonoma, CA 95476 (City Hall), or by email at, until 5:00 p.m. December 9, 2022. The Commission will consider the nominations and select the Treasure Artist at their next meeting. Contact City Clerk Rebekah Barr at 933-2216 for additional information.
