Fresno, CA: Fresno Arts Council (FAC), is thrilled to be hosting their 33rd Annual Horizon Awards, during October’s National Arts Month on Sunday, October 14th, at The Tower Theater in the Tower District.
This much-awaited event began in 1984 to recognize the contributions of artists and art supporters in the Fresno community, Horizon Awards have been awarded to 207 outstanding Fresno County citizens and organizations.
The arts and cultural activities supported by FAC have an important economic impact on our community as we continue in making Fresno a great place to live and to visit. The Horizon Award is just one of the many services and programs provided by FAC. FAC has also established a multidisciplinary artist-training program that allows us to work closely with schools and correction facilities to deliver critical arts lessons absent for many years in the public sector.
The Annual Horizon Awards are given to recognize individuals, organizations and businesses in six categories: Artist, Business, Citizen, Educator, Special, and Youth, that have made a significant contribution toward the enrichment of life in the Fresno Community through the excellence in the Arts. This event will include the awards ceremony, held in the Tower Theatre, honoring this year’s winners as well as a catered reception after.
Fresno Arts Council is currently accepting nominations for the 2018 Horizon Awards!! If you know of an artist, citizen, business, youth, or just someone who is out there promoting or is active in our local arts community fill out a nomination form! Nominations deadline is September 7th. The nomination form can be found online at Fresnoartscouncil.org
