Santa Monica Arts Leadership Award Nominations Now Open:

The Santa Monica Arts Foundation is launching the Arts Leadership Award, which recognizes exemplary leaders who have supported Santa Monica’s creative community.

The nonmonetary, annual leadership awards will honor individuals and businesses in three categories:

Arts Patron: An individual or business leader providing extensive support for the arts in Santa Monica.

Artist in the Community: An artist who has contributed significantly to Santa Monica’s arts community through activism, patronage, and/or volunteerism.

Creative Community Innovator: An individual or small or mid-size commercial creative business contributing to making Santa Monica’s arts and culture sector ‘cutting edge’ through experimentation, design, or cultural sustainability.

The leadership awards are a program of the Santa Monica Arts Foundation—a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing civic engagement and support of the City’s arts and cultural community.

“Volunteers, philanthropists, and creative industry are the backbone of Santa Monica’s extraordinary arts community,” said George Minardos, Foundation Chairperson, “and these awards will highlight the importance of their contributions.”

Both nominators and nominees must currently live or work in Santa Monica, and nominated businesses must be currently licensed and operating in the City. Self-nominations are accepted.

The selection committee will consider the significance of nominees’ contributions and leadership as they reflect the breadth of Santa Monica’s creative community.

Awards recipients will be recognized at a ceremony in early 2013 and will receive an original artwork by a locally renowned artist.

The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012.

Guidelines and the nomination form are available at www.smgov.net/artsleaders.
