Community Arts Partnership Awards
The Greater Columbus Arts Council will not produce a live event for the Community Arts Partnership Awards in 2020. We will still award an individual with the Michael B. Coleman award and for this year we have created a new award that honors the creative, and innovative ways in which our community has kept people connected to the arts during a uniquely turbulent year–the Community Arts Innovation Award.
On Oct. 14 we will announce the four winners of the new award and release a video honoring Dale Heydlauff, the 2020 recipient of the Michael B. Coleman Award Arts Partner Award, presented each year to a civic, community or business leader who is a role model for long-term and exemplary support of the central Ohio arts and cultural community because of her or his significant contributions of time, effort and/or financial resources.
Since 1984, the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Community Arts Partnership Awards have recognized the community’s crucial contributions to the arts including financial support, non-cash contributions, volunteer involvement and board participation. Strong partnerships within 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 and every year.
The Community Arts Innovation nomination form is now closed. Stay tuned on October 14 for our winner announcement!
