2016 Community Arts Partnership Artists

The Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Community Arts Partnership Award program recognizes the community’s crucial contributions to the arts including financial support, non-cash contributions, volunteer involvement and board participation. Strong partnerships between businesses, community members and the arts stimulate economic growth, promote the city’s revitalization, encourage tourism and enhance Columbus’ cultural image and give life to the city.

The 2016 event honored winners in six categories at a luncheon on Thursday, Oct. 13 at COSI.

Each year, as part of the program, the Arts Council purchases the work of three local artists to present to the three business honorees. Ten local artists are selected to show two works each at the CAP Art Selection show in August. Three works that will be chosen through a jury process in late August by the Arts Council’s Board of Trustees presented at the 2016 CAP Awards.
