Dolly Jacobs Receives National Heritage Fellowship

Coconut Telegraph

Sarasota's own international circus legend, Dolly Jacobs has received a National Heritage Fellowship award from the National Endowment for the Arts  in Washington, D.C. This is the first time a circus performer has ever received this distinguished award, and it highlights the mission of The Circus Arts Conservatory to raise the perception of the circus as a valuable form of art. The two-day celebration began on October 1 in the Library of Congress when NEA Chairman Jane Chu presented the 2015 awards to Dolly and the other honorees. On Friday, October 2,  a prestigious National Heritage Fellowships Concert in Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University featured Dolly performing her aerial act as well as other Heritage Fellowship Award artists
