Join us for Mayor’s Arts Awards celebration tomorrow

Don’t miss THE arts celebration of the summer. Join Mayor Greg Nickels tomorrow to honor the 2009 Mayor’s Arts Award recipients and preview the Bumbershoot Visual Arts Exhibits.

Nancy Guppy, host of Seattle Channel’s Art Zone In Studio, will emcee the outdoor ceremony, noon, Friday, Sept. 4 at Seattle Center’s Northwest Court. The weather forecast is calling for a slight chance of showers, so you might want to bring your bumbershoot.

The 2009 recipients are: Artist Trust, visual artist Jesse Higman, Seattle Opera General Director Speight Jenkins, Northwest Tap Connection and Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras.

Bumbershoot’s visual arts exhibits will open one day early with a free public preview from noon to 7 p.m. in the Northwest Rooms.

The Mayor’s Arts Awards are presented in partnership with Bumbershoot®: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival. Media sponsor is City Arts Seattle.
