Know an individual or an organization making a difference in Seattle through arts and culture? Nominate them for a 2010 Mayor’s Arts Award.
Nomination deadline is 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 7. The Seattle Arts Commission will review public nominations and recommend recipients to the mayor for final selection. The awards, which are non-monetary, are presented each year. Recipients will be announced in June.
Mayor Mike McGinn will honor recipients of the 2010 Mayor’s Arts Awards at a public ceremony on the eve of the Labor Day weekend Bumbershoot festival at Seattle Center, noon, Friday, Sept. 3. He will also open the Bumbershoot Visual Arts Exhibits, which will be free and open to the public that day.
“Arts and culture are the soul of our city. They ignite our neighborhoods, engage young minds, offer a common language and boost our economy,” said McGinn. “I look forward to honoring the inspiring accomplishments of artists and cultural organizations making a difference in our community.”
This is the eighth year of the awards, which are presented in partnership with Bumbershoot®: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival and media sponsor City Arts magazine. View past recipients here.
