It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of local artist and community activist Carl Butler. He gave so much of himself and his art to the Frederick community and he will be greatly missed.

Individual Artist Awards in Memory of Carl Butler

We will be hosting a fund for Individual Artist Awards in memory of Carl Butler, as supporting local individual artists was something he was passionate about. You can make a donation by sending a check to the Frederick Arts Council at 11 W Patrick Street, Suite 201, Frederick, MD, 21701, with a note saying that the donation is for the Carl Butler Individual Artist Fund, or by donating using the “Donate Now” button at left, putting your “Individual Artist Fund” note under “Special instructions.” We look forward to allowing his memory to continue to serve the community!
