Our City's Arts Commission annually presents an Arts Advocacy Award to an individual or group who has significantly contributed to the city’s cultural and artistic enrichment and/or has shown extraordinary support and initiative for the arts.
This year the MCA is seeking public input on nominations for the award. Commissioners would like to see who community members believe has made a positive cultural or artistic impact on the Middletown community. The nominee need not reside in Middletown but should be an individual or group that has made an outstanding impact on the arts in this city.
In 2012, The Buttonwood Tree and the Greater Middletown Concert Association received the award. In 2011, composer Neely Bruce and the Mayor's Ball Committee earned distinction.
Email suggestions to City Arts Coordinator Stephan Allison at Stephan.Allison@middletownct.gov no later than Dec. 17. Please identify the town you live in.
The MCA will be presenting its award honoring this year's recipient in a local ceremony open to the public coinciding with National Arts Advocacy Day March 24-25 in Washington, D.C.
