EVERETT – The City of Everett Cultural Arts Commission invites nominations for the 2019 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 27th 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 tenth year. The awards honor art educators, artists in the community and organizations supporting the arts, all of whom demonstrate promise and commitment to the Everett arts community. If you know of someone that has contributed to the arts in Everett they are likely to be a great candidate for an award.
Nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The Cultural Arts Commission will review the nominations and select the recipients. The awards, which are non-monetary, are presented annually.
Everett’s mayor, Cassie Franklin will honor recipients of the 2019 Mayor’s Arts Awards and the Richard Wendt Award of Excellence at the Everett Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020. The event is free and open to the public. For more information and a nomination form, visit everettwa.gov/artsawards.
