Every fall, on a beautiful crisp evening in November, jazz musicians play soft tunes that tickle the ears. Colorful soft lighting, sparkling sequins, and downy feathers will delight the eyes. The historic Browning Theater inside Union Station is the backdrop for these wonderful sensory treats. If you have experienced this, you must know about the annual Mayor Awards in the Arts.
For many years, Ogden City has been celebrating individual artists and arts-based organizations that have made a difference for the Ogden community. These special people and organizations are recognized at a semi-formal event where Mayor Caldwell presents the recipients with a hand-crafted award made by a local artisan. This beautiful evening, with delicious hors d’oeuvres, is Ogden’s way of thanking the people and organizations that make life special. Musicians, Poets, Visual Artist, Arts Educators, and more are recognized for their dedication.
Right now, and year-round, you can nominate a deserving artist or arts organization that has been making a difference for those they serve. The nomination deadline for this year’s celebration is August 28. If you know one of these special people, or an amazing arts organization, please visit ogdencity.com/mayorsawards to complete the short and easy nomination form.
Share some magic with an artist. A nomination can mean the world to these creative people. Please consider taking the time to make a big difference in someone’s life, as the work that they do makes a big difference in all of our lives.
