Florence Regional Arts Alliance Art Awards Night
May 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As part of its mission to recognize those making a difference in the community through the support, development and growth of the arts, the Florence Regional Arts Alliance honors Florence County businesses, organizations and individuals with the four following awards:
The John W. Baker Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual from Florence County who has significantly impacted the quality of life in our community through his/her activities, contributions, and/or accomplishments in the arts.
The Business and Arts Partnership Award recognizes a Florence County business for its vital commitment to the arts as evidence by operational and/or project support provided on a substantial and ongoing basis.
The Outstanding Arts Organization is presented annually to the Florence County arts organization that has a tremendous impact on the community. This may be through programming, projects, resource development, advocacy or other innovation. No organization may win this award twice in a four year period.
The Greg Fry Arts Educator Award Recipient is presented annually to an educator who either resides or works in Florence County. Public and private schools educators are eligible for this award, as well as individuals in higher education and those who teach through registered 501(c)(3) arts organizations.
The awards themselves will be a piece of artwork created by local artist. The 2018 Arts Awards will be presented at a reception on Tuesday, May 8th at 6pm within the Waters Building.
Nominations may be submitted through the Florence Regional Arts Website at http://www.florenceartsalliance.org/awards/ through April 23.
