Thursday, September 6, 2012

On Thursday, September 13, the DC Commission on the Arts (DCCAH) and Humanities will host the 27th Annual Mayor’s Arts Awards at the Historic Lincoln Theatre. This year, Mayor Vincent C. Gray, along with the DCCAH will honor four Washingtonians that have made significant contributions to the arts in Washington, DC. The honorees are former DC Mayor, Anthony A. Williams; writer, director and producer, George Stevens, Jr.; Melvin Deale, Executive Director of the African Heritage Dancers and Drummers; and lawyer, Paul C. Jorgensen, who provides ongoing pro bono legal services for community civic and arts groups.

“This year’s honorees are cultural icons in their own right. And we—the nation’s capital—are richer because of their commitment to excellence and the indelible impact that they’ve made,” said Judith Terra, Chair of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. “Their life’s work goes beyond the stage. They have spent years influencing lives through their contribution to the arts.”
