The Arts Council Now Accepting Nominations for 37th Annual Arts Awards

Nominations Accepted Through Sept. 14 for Creative Ecosystem Theme

New Haven, Conn. – The Arts Council of Greater New Haven is now accepting Arts Awards nominations! The theme of the 2017 Arts Awards is Creative Ecosystem. This year marks the Arts Council’s 37th annual Arts Awards luncheon and honors those who exemplify the complexity of our Creative Ecosystem. Who is radically expanding the word “art” to influence entrepreneurship, social justice, food, or health? Where are thriving collaborations and daring experiments sustaining our creative community? What challenged you to reconsider your preconceived assumptions about “art” this year?

The Arts Council seeks nominees from all corners of Greater New Haven in any discipline, which might include individuals, organizations, businesses, volunteers, philanthropists, events, and ideas. There is no limit to how many nominations you can submit. In fact, we encourage multiple submissions. An independent committee will select winners based on quality, not quantity, of nominations.

Nominations are accepted at now through Thursday, Sept. 14, 5 p.m.

The Arts Council is also seeking sponsors for the event. Those interested in supporting this long-standing significant event should contact Development Director Megan Manton, 203-772-2788 or
