Arts Council seeking nominations for the ArtsKC Awards


Each year, the ArtsKC Awards luncheon is attended by more than 500 metropolitan area business and arts professionals and is widely known as one of the "must attend" events of the year. The 2013 luncheon will be held Friday, January 25th on Starlight Theatre's Enclosed Stage.

The ArtsKC Awards luncheon is a wonderful and unique opportunity to honor businesses and individuals for their remarkable commitment to the Kansas City arts community.

Nominations are currently being accepted for the following awards:

Virtuoso Award - The Virtuoso Award recognizes an exceptional individual or group of individuals who has/have volunteered for a metropolitan area arts organization(s) or artist(s).

Impact Award - The Impact Award honors a metropolitan area business that had, or continues to have, a significant impact on a local arts organization or artist. Honorees will be selected based on criteria such as scope of involvement, impact of contribution, originality, and quality of service.
