The ArtScene Backstage Award
Recognizes extraordinary service to the arts through behind-the-scenes efforts.
Why am I involved with the arts? Because the arts - be it theatre, fine arts, music, dance, writing, or any other form - is what breathes life into a community. It is what makes a community colorful, literally and figuratively. Because the arts showcase the spectrum of human emotions and experiences. Most importantly, because the arts bring people together - as audience members, as participants, and as collaborators. – Michelle Zinke
