Recap: 2013 Mayor's Celebration of the Arts - MasterMaq.ca Blog
The 26th annual Mayor's Celebration of the Arts took place on Monday night at the Winspear Centre. Talented artists being recognized for their efforts, highly entertaining performances in a variety of genres, and hundreds of local supporters of the arts – what's not to love? I look forward to the event every year! This year's event supported Kids Up Front Edmonton, a very worthy organization which works to provide kids with the chance to experience arts, sports, and entertainment events. Since it was formed in 2003, Kids Up Front has donated 237,174 tickets valued at $5.8 million to local kids and families. Here's an excerpt of Mayor Mandel's message in the program: Arts and culture form the very heart and spirit of our city. The creativity of our vibrant arts community is a fitting complement to the innovative spirit of our business community. The Mayor's Celebration of the Arts celebrates the best in local talent and each year I leave this evening of awards and performances feeling
