Sixth Annual Mayor’s Arts Awards Call for Nominations
Award Created by Local Artist
The City of Sedona is accepting nominations for the Sixth Mayor’s Arts Awards, which each year honor individuals, organizations, and businesses that have made outstanding contributions to the success of the arts in the City of Sedona.
The Mayor’s Arts Awards recognize those who have contributed to the development, expansion, and success of the arts in Sedona. It does not address the quality or quantity of any particular individual or group’s artwork. The term “arts” refers to all aspects of the arts, including but not limited to culinary, dance, film, literary, music, performing, and visual.
There are four nomination categories including Individual, Organization/Business, Education and Lifetime Achievement.
The first two categories are for an individual, organization, gallery, or other business who has made a significant contribution to the advancement, preservation, or accessibility of the arts in Sedona, or who has demonstrated leadership in advancing the arts through advocacy, promotion, creativity, and innovation in development of the arts in Sedona.
The Education category is for an individual, organization, gallery, or other business that has made a significant contribution to the advancement or accessibility of arts education in the greater Sedona area, or demonstrated leadership in advancing arts education through advocacy, promotion, creativity, and innovation in the development of programs or venues in the greater Sedona area.
The category of Lifetime Achievement is for an individual who has demonstrated outstanding leadership in advancing and supporting the arts and/or artists in Sedona over a significant number of years.
Each recipient will be honored and receive an award at the sixth Mayor’s Arts Awards ceremony to be held in the Fall of 2016.
