The Mobile Arts Council and Wind Creek Hospitality have announced that nominations for the Artys are now open for 2016.
The Artys is an annual awards program that celebrates the important contributions that individuals, groups, and businesses make to the Mobile cultural community.
Awards will be presented in 11 different categories–an increase from the previous year’s eight categories.
This year’s Artys categories include: Lifetime Achievement, Patron, Arts Educator, Artistic Innovation, Visual Artist, Performing Artist, Literary Artist, Artistic Design, Business, Organization and Art Soldier.
You can nominate any number of individuals from now until October 26th through
the nomination link: NOMINATE
Winners of each category will be announced at the event and presented with the limited edition award designed by Susie Bowman, owner of the Kiln Studio and Gallery. A local artist working in a different medium is selected each year to create a one-of-a-kind art piece to serve as the award.
The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, January 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Alabama Contemporary Art Center, 301 Conti St., Mobile, Ala. 36602.
Tickets are on sale now and open to the public. Mobile Arts Council members can purchase tickets at a discounted price.
