Two recipients of the 2018 Governor's Arts Awards will be honored for their commitment to arts education.

Dr. F. Robert Sabol is recognized among the most talented, skillful, and knowledgeable arts educators in the nation. He began his career as a K-6 art teacher in his hometown of Crawfordsville, Indiana. Following doctoral studies at Indiana University, D. Sabol became interested in deeper research into arts education assessment involving large group studies.

Since 1941, the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University has served as the center of arts education for south central Indiana. The museum's encyclopedic collection contains more than 45,000 objects, with representative works of art from across the world and across time.

Dr. Sabol and the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art are among five recipients of the 2018 Indiana Governor's Arts Awards. The recipients were announced recently by Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Arts Commission, and will be honored during a performance program October 19, 2018 at Sweetwater Sound, Inc. Fort Wayne, Indiana. Learn more.
