It’s that time of year again…
The City of Everett Cultural Arts Commission invites nominations for the 2014 Mayor’s Arts Awards and the prestigious Richard Wendt Award of Excellence. The awards recognize the accomplishments of artists, arts and cultural organizations and community members committed to enriching the Everett community through the arts.
This is the 22nd year of the Richard Wendt Award of Excellence, a lifetime achievement award given to individuals whose strong support of the arts has been ongoing through philanthropic and volunteer service.
In recognition of Everett’s growing arts community, the commission created the Mayor’s Arts Awards, now in their fifth year. The awards honor art educators, artists in the community and young artists demonstrating promise and commitment to the Everett arts community.
Nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6. The Cultural Arts Commission will review the nominations and select the recipients. The awards, which are non-monetary, are presented annually.
