The public is invited to celebrate alongside the 2022 Mayor’s Arts Awards recipients as well as their families and friends. The 2022 award recipients receive a custom-designed artwork made by a local artist, Jana Vrtelova Holbert. Receiving awards this year are:

  • Rootforest LLC for Outstanding Contribution as a Business
  • Jennifer Rod for Outstanding Achievement in Arts Education

Also recognized at the ceremony will be the previous cycle’s Mayor’s Arts Awards recipients, whose awards were given without a ceremony in 2020 due to the need for social distancing at that time. Those award recipients are:

  • Rdesign/Melissa Rockwood for Outstanding Contribution as a Business
  • Carolyn Guy for Individual Excellence in the Arts
  • Paul Anders for Arts Advocacy
  • Jim Christiansen for Lifetime Achievement

The ceremony will feature a presentation of awards by Mayor Art Bettge. The event will also include desserts made by Goosehouse Bakery, a no-host bar by Pour Company, and live music by Jim Boland.
