Ivy Tech Waldron seeks nominations for community arts awards
Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus invites nominations from the public for a Community Arts Awards reception and fundraiser, honoring local arts advocates, educators, and businesses. The Community Arts Awards reception and fundraiser will be held on Saturday, March 7 and is planned in connection with the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center’s centennial, which takes place this year, 2015.
There are four arts award categories. The Business Award will recognize a business for exemplary support of the arts. The Arts in Education Award will recognize an educator, school corporation, Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), or other entity directly influencing and engaging students through visual, literary or performing arts. The Arts Advocate Award will recognize an individual who has provided service, leadership, and/or substantial support to the arts. The Special Citation Award will recognize any individual or organization that deserves recognition for their contribution to the arts.
