The Cleveland Arts Prize

When: Wed., May 3 2017

The Cleveland Arts Prize is the oldest award of its kind in the United States. For more than 45 years, the organization has recognized local individual artists and arts advocates with special awards. Each year, artists must be nominated by another member of the community to be eligible for the Cleveland Arts Prize. Currently the Cleveland Arts Prize awards $10,000 to two emerging artists, two mid-career artists and one lifetime achievement award (as well as two special prizes that don’t include cash awards). From 6 to 8 tonight, MOCA Cleveland hosts a live announcement of the 2017 Cleveland Arts Prize winners. Wednesday’s event also includes the third installment of CAPtalks, featuring storytellers Cindy Barber, owner of the Beachland Ballroom & Tavern (CAP 2007), and geometric abstraction artist John Pearson (CAP 1975), who’ll discuss the subject of love. General admission tickets are $15, and Sponsor Circle tickets are available for $100 each and include 5 p.m. entry. (Josh Usmani)
