The arts give life to the city. Help us celebrate those who give life to the arts.

Strong partnerships between businesses, community members and the arts stimulate economic growth, promote the city’s revitalization, encourage tourism and enhance Columbus’ cultural image. The Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Community Arts Partnership awards, now in their 35th year, recognize the community’s crucial contributions to the arts including financial support, non-cash contributions, volunteer involvement and board participation.

Support community arts educational programs for children and get noticed by civic, corporate and arts leaders.

On Thursday, October 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, 400 N. High Street in the Short North Ballroom, the Arts Council will host civic, corporate and arts leaders for a luncheon, keynote speaker and presentation of the 2018 Community Arts Partnership awards, which will recognize three employers and three individuals for outstanding support of local arts in the past year. Award categories include: Small Employer, Medium Employer, Large Employer, Arts Educator, Emerging Arts Leader and the Michael B. Coleman Arts Partner.

The Arts Council will also present two annual Artistic Excellence Awards, which carries a $10,000 prize, to a local arts organization that has demonstrated risk, innovation and artistic excellence within the past year.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education‘s programming for children, including  Art in the House and Artists-in-Schools programs.

Arts Educator, Emerging Arts Leader and Arts Partner

Corporate support of the arts is invaluable. But we also want to recognize the important work that individual community members do to sustain the arts in our community. The Arts Council will solicit nominations from the public for the Arts Educator, the Emerging Arts Leader and the Arts Partner awards for individuals. Award winners, who will be honored at the luncheon event along with our employer winners, will be chosen by the Arts Council’s board.
