ARTS Partnership Award

Two ARTS Partnership Awards are presented annually to individuals, businesses, schools, or organizations that have demonstrated vision, leadership, and commitment to the advancement of the arts in our region. ARTS Partnership Award recipients have shown a sense of personal responsibility, making a significant impact on the community through their arts-related service.

Nominations for the 2017 ARTS Partnership Award should contain evidence of the nominee’s arts and cultural accomplishments and the impact of those accomplishments on the region. Please note, if the nominee is an arts professional, accomplishments should extend beyond the professional sphere, suggesting a broader and more personal dedication to arts advancement in the region.

Award recipients will be honored Thursday, December 7, 2017, with a celebratory ceremony. The ceremony is a ticketed event, open to the public, which will be held at The Clemens Center in Elmira.
