Artists from Marquette were honored tonight at the Peter White Library. The 18th annual Art Awards were held by the Marquette Arts and Culture Advisory Committee. A reception was held before the awards ceremony at which many local artists had their work on display. Members of the committee said tonight was a time to recognize hard work and say thank you.
"It is all about a longtime commitment from the city and the community to thank folks for their hard work in the arts," Arts and Culture Advisory Committee Chair Walt Lindala said. "We realize that its something that makes Marquette special and we take an evening and we say thank you."
Awards were handed out in several different categories including Arts Volunteer, Visual Artist and there was even a youth award.
