In concert with the City of Lake Charles, the Arts Council of SWLA invites the public to the 2019 Mayor’s Arts Awards ceremony.
Mayor Nic Hunter will award creative workers, patrons, and artists by recognizing their contributions to the culture of Southwest Louisiana.
“Our community’s arts and cultural scene is phenomenal,” stated Ashli Waldrep, Arts Council Executive Director. “Many of our cultural workers often aren’t in the spotlight, and this is a perfect opportunity to really show them the community’s gratitude.”
Award categories include Artist of the Year, Citizen of the Arts, Citizen of the Humanities, Arts Educator of the Year, Cultural Organization of the Year, and Patron of the Year. The Keystone award is also given to an individual who works diligently behind the scenes, without whom programs and performances would not be possible.
Award winners are chosen by an independent panel and will be kept secret until the night of the ceremony.
The nomination form is available on our website at https://artscouncilswla.org/events/whats-coming-up/mayors-art-awards/
Business casual attire is recommended.
