Community Arts Partnership Awards

The 2019 Community Arts Partnership Awards will be held at 11:30am on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in the Short North Ballroom.

The Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Community Arts Partnership Awards recognize 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. The arts give life to the city.  Help us celebrate those who give life to the arts.

Each year, the Arts Council hosts civic, corporate and arts leaders for a luncheon, keynote speaker and presentation of the Community Arts Partnership awards, recognizing three business and three individuals for outstanding support of local arts in the past year.

Proceeds from this event will benefit community arts and arts education programming in Columbus.

The deadline for nominations was Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 5 p.m.
