There’s nothing quite like seeing artists from diverse fields converge on a single spot. It’s precisely what will happen as Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Phoenix Center for the Arts kick off the third annual Mayor’s Arts Awards at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 13, at the Margaret T. Hance Park Urban Plaza, 1134 North Central Avenue.
They will present awards in several categories including visual art, theater, music, dance, and creative writing. And innovators in the arts will also get the spotlight that night. More than 30 nominees are up for awards this year, including visual artist Tato Caraveo, playwright Marcelino Quinonez, and choreographer Nicole Olson.
Tickets are $75, and this year’s proceeds will help fund free art workshops for military veterans and their families provided by Phoenix Center for the Arts in partnership with the ASU Pat Tillman Veteran Center and Office for Veteran and Military Academic Engagement.
