Nominations for Community Arts Awards
Due on Friday, August 10, 2018

Ivy Tech Community College in partnership with the City of Bloomington Arts Commission invites nominations for the fourth-annual Community Arts Awards to honor local arts advocates, educators, and businesses. The event will be held on Thursday, November 15 at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, located at 122 S. Walnut St. Tickets will be on sale in September. “Bloomington and our surrounding communities value art in such a special, tremendous way,” said Paul Daily, artistic director of the Ivy Tech Waldron. “It takes a community to create art, and the Arts Awards are a chance to recognize the people that have helped bring art to life, but may not have ever stood in the spotlight themselves.”
