Columbus, Ohio – Join the Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC) for the 2013 Community Arts Partnership (CAP) awards to celebrate the strong partnerships between businesses, community members and the arts that stimulate economic growth, promote the city’s revitalization, encourage tourism and enhance Columbus’ cultural image. GCAC’s CAP awards, now in their 30th year, recognize the community’s important contributions to the arts including financial support, non-cash contributions, volunteer involvement and board participation.
