Megan Brandel Named a Recipient of the 2022 Governor’s Awards in the Arts.

Congratulations to dancer, choreographer, and instructor Megan Brandel (Studio AIR October 2020), who will be a recipient of the 2022 Governor’s Awards in the Arts. Awards will be presented in a public ceremony on Nov. 28 at the Idaho State Museum in Boise. In addition to creating works as a Studio AIR at Surel’s Place, Ms. Brandel was a dancer in AIR Robin Stiehm’s (July 2019) piece and collaborated with AIR Molly Joyce (August 2021) in “Perspective” with the inclusive Open Arms Dance Project that Brandel runs. A brief excerpt of this piece, eventually performed at the Morrison Center, is included in this video produced by Idaho Public Television as part of #PBSForTheArts initiative.
