Florence Regional Arts Alliance presents its
2019 Arts Awards on May 7th, 2019
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 presents for the following four 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.
Arts Awards are based on nominations submitted by the community.

The awards themselves will be a piece of artwork created by local artist Tiffany Thomas. Thomas is the recipient for the 2018 Arts Award for Business and Partnership.
