Press Release for Arts Commission: Arts Advocacy Award

Some artsy news from editor Cassandra Day of the Middletown Patch:

The Middletown Commission on the Arts (MCA) presents annually an Arts Advocacy Award to an individual or group who has significantly contributed to the city’s cultural and artistic enrichment and/or has shown extraordinary support and initiative for the arts.

This year, for the first time, the MCA is seeking public input on nominations for the award. We would like to see who you believe has made a positive cultural or artistic impact on the Middletown community. The nominee need not reside in Middletown but should be an individual or group that has made an outstanding impact on the arts in this city.

Please email suggestions to MCA Chair Lee Godburn at arts(at)middletownct(dot)gov no later than February 18, 2012, your nominations may or may not be anonymous but please identify the town you live in.

The MCA will be presenting its award honoring this year’s recipient in a local ceremony open to the public coinciding with National Arts Advocacy Day April 16-17 in Washington, D.C.

With the depth of artistic talent right in our own backyard, if you think a Wesleyan student, student group, professor or any one else you know (including yourself) may qualify for this, check it out!
