Each year, the city celebrates the rich contributions of arts and culture in Seattle with the Mayor’s Arts Awards. This year, the recipients hail from the worlds of dance, multidisciplinary arts, music and the Vietnamese community. The Seattle Arts Commission recommended a selection of individuals and organizations to Mayor Mike McGinn from a pool of more than 300 public nominees. The awards will be presented at 4 pm at Seattle Center and will also kick off Bumbershoot’s Visual Arts Exhibits, which will be open until 9 pm tonight. Below is a list of those receiving the Mayor’s Arts Awards this year:

  • Donald Byrd, choreographer and artistic director of Spectrum Dance Theater
  • Jack Straw Productions
  • Dr. Quinton Morris, violinist and professor
  • On the Boards
  • Pratt Fine Arts Center
