Greensboro, NC – March 3, 2015 | ArtsGreensboro, in partnership with the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, Guilford Merchants Association, and the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center at UNC-G, is accepting nominations for the Arts in Business Award. Each year the award emphasizes the outstanding work of a Greensboro business for their overall success in the areas of leadership, commitment, and on the impact that they have made on the arts in the year leading up to the annual nominations. The extent of this impact may be measured through activities, projects (several, or one of significant magnitude), or events that the business puts on to support any aspect of the arts.
Potential nominees must be a small Greensboro business with 100 or less employees. Foundations, individual philanthropists, government agencies and arts organizations are not eligible and will not be accepted as nominees.
Last year’s award recognized Just Be for their support of over 60 local artists and their sponsoring of various arts projects, such as the Dirty Fingernails show at the Center for Visual Arts and the Female Artist Takeover, an event that highlighted the work of 6 local female artists.
This year’s recipient will be honored at the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Awards Evening Event on Tuesday, May 12. The awards will be given based on the information included in the nomination form.
Nominations for the 2015 Arts in Business Award are due to ArtsGreensboro no later than 5 pm on Friday, April 3. Organizations are encouraged to nominate their own business or another that fulfills the criteria.
