MADISON, WI-Arts Wisconsin, Wisconsin’s statewide community cultural development organization, will present the ninth annual Arts in the Community Awards on Thursday, October 19, 2017, during the League of Wisconsin Municipalities’ 119th annual conference, at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton, WI.
These awards, presented by Arts Wisconsin in partnership with the League of Municipalities, honor communities and civic leaders around the state for championing the arts as integral to economic, educational and community vitality and succes. Award winners for 2017 were selected by a panel of civic leaders from a highly competitive statewide pool of nominees. The Arts in the Community awards are unique works of glass art designed and created by Matthew Heindl of Maatwerk Studios in Blue Mounds, WI.
“The Arts in the Community Awards celebrate visionary leadership in and committed advocacy for the arts in all corners of the state,” says Arts Wisconsin Board President Ann Huntoon. “We’re proud to partner with the League of Municipalities to present these awards, and appreciative of the sponsors who make the awards possible.”
