Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Phoenix Center for the Arts present the Mayor’s Arts Awards, 7-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21 at the Phoenix Center for the Arts, 1202 N. 3rd St.

Art lovers and community-minded individuals can reserve their spot in this interactive arts experience. The Mayor’s Arts Awards event features an interactive tour of the facility, live performances in nearly every artistic medium, one-of-a-kind raffle prizes, and Mayor Stanton presenting awards to this year’s deserving honorees.

This year’s event also adds a new Honorary Artist award to the list of commendations. The Honorary Artist award will be given to a community member who has demonstrated leadership by finding creative solutions for the arts in the city of Phoenix.

The Mayor’s Arts Awards identify outstanding leaders in six areas: visual arts, theatre, music, dance, public art, and creative writing. An 18-person committee of experts in each medium will nominate candidates through a two-stage selection process.

Tickets are $75 and are available for purchase at the Phoenix Center for the Arts box office or by calling 602-254-3100.
