Submit Your John Corey and Bravo Award Nominations

Bravo for the Arts celebrates the arts and recognizes outstanding people, programs, and partners who are helping grow the arts in our community. In addition to serving as an annual convening of arts and community leaders, the luncheon highlights cultural organizations through the presentation of grant awards. Bravo also honors an individual and area business through the presentation of two awards, the John Corey Award and the Bravo Award.

Bravo Awards are presented to businesses that have made significant contributions to arts and culture organizations, including financial assistance or in-kind donations or by providing volunteers for events, boards, or projects.


John Corey Arts Leadership Award is given each year to a person who exhibits and embodies leadership in the arts. A John Corey Arts Leadership Award recipient regularly demonstrates their commitment to the arts and advances the role of the arts.


Nominations are due September 20.
