Reminder: Mayor's Awards for Excellence in the Arts reception is tonight
For the past month Westword has been profiling the winners of the 2012 Mayor's Awards for Excellence in the Arts. Since 1986 these awards have honored creative individuals and organizations that make artful impact in the community -- but this year they were split into three new categories: Youth Arts, Entrepreneurial Arts and Impact Arts. The awards ceremony for the winners -- Denver's Arts District on Santa Fe, Emmanuel Gallery and Denver Ballet Guild -- will be held tonight at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
