The eighth annual Arts in the Community Awards, presented by Arts Wisconsin in partnership with the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, honor communities and civic leaders around the state for championing the arts as integral to economic, educational and community vitality. The deadline to submit nominations is Aug. 19.
The awards will be presented at the league’s annual conference on Oct. 20 in Stevens Point. The awardees will also participate in a conference panel discussion on the arts and creative economy in Wisconsin communities at the league conference. The awards are original works of glass art created by Matthew Heindl of Maatwerk Studio in Blue Mounds, Wis.
“The Arts in the Community Awards are a wonderful way to celebrate the visionary leadership in and for the arts in Wisconsin’s communities,” said Arts Wisconsin Board President Christopher Naumann. “We’re proud to partner with the League of Municipalities to present these awards, and appreciative of the sponsors who make the awards possible.”
Sponsors of the awards are Heid Music, Redevelopment Resources of Wausau and Madison, and Vierbicher Associates.
