Hi All,


Nominations for the 2020 Annual Leadership Awards are still open! These awards recognize the achievements of individuals, organizations, or programs committed to enriching their communities through the arts and are presented in conjunction with the Annual Convention and Public Art & Civic Design Conference taking place June 26-28, 2020 in Washington, D.C. Nominations close Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 11:59 P.M. ET. You must be a member of Americans for the Arts to submit nominations; nominees, however, are not required to be members of Americans for the Arts. Visit the Annual Awards page for more information or to submit a nomination.


Notably, I encourage you to nominate an individual for the Michael Newton Award, which recognizes an individual for their innovation in developing arts and business partnerships for the arts and/or long-term achievement in effective and creative techniques to engage the private sector.


Please let me know if you have any questions,
