The City of Santa Fe is seeking nominations of individuals or organizations that deserve an award for their outstanding work in the arts through the 2010 Mayor’s Recognition Awards for Excellence in the Arts. This award recognizes individuals and organizations that have made significant, ongoing or legacy contributions to the success of the arts in Santa Fe.
Nominations of youth artists—aged 21 and under—who have demonstrated artistic excellence and achievement with a deep commitment to the arts are also considered for the Melissa Engestrom Youth Artist Award. The public is invited to submit nominations of outstanding young individuals who deserve special recognition even though they are not yet well-established in their careers.
A nomination form can be obtained through The Arts Commission website or by contacting the Arts Commission office at 955-6707 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday, May 14, 2010. Current Commission members and recipients of the Governor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts within the last five years are ineligible. Please note that there is no need to submit multiple nominations for one person or organization. One thorough nomination will ensure consideration by the selection committee.
This year’s awards are sponsored by Century Bank. For more information about the 2010 Mayor’s Recognition Awards for Excellence in the Arts, nomination forms, or to see a list of past recipients, go to The Arts Commission website.
