Do you know an artistic leader that deserves recognition? Is there a business or individual that has supported the arts in Richmond above and beyond the call of duty? Can you think of a young person that excels in the arts?
The City of Richmond is pleased to present the fifth annual Richmond Arts Awards, a program designed to recognize the achievements in, and contributions to, the arts by Richmond residents, artists, educators, organizers and business leaders. The public is encouraged to submit nominations by Monday, March 18 for the awards which will be announced later this spring.
Developed in partnership with the Richmond Arts Coalition and sponsored by the Richmond News, the awards celebrate excellence in six categories: Business and the Arts, Volunteerism, Cultural Leadership, Artistic Innovation, Arts Education and Youth Arts. All artistic disciplines are eligible: visual, performing, literary and culinary arts, as well as craft, environmental arts and new media.
