Celebrating excellence.

We're very pleased to announce that this year's Mayor's Arts Awards recipients include: alumna and former faculty member Liz Magor (Public Art); alumna Devon Knowles (emerging artist, Public Art); alumnus Brian Jungen (Visual Arts); alumnus Ron Tran (emerging artist, Public Art) and alumna Sam Knopp (emerging artist, Craft and Design).

The City of Vancouver's Mayor’s Arts Awards recognize established and emerging artists in a wide array of disciplines that make up our creative sector – from literary to culinary arts, and visual to performing arts, as well as four unique awards for support of the arts by individuals and businesses and a special award for Lifetime Achievement.

Honourees are chosen each year through a juried process, with nominations from the community, for having made a significant contribution to their respective disciplines, and for showing leadership, innovation and support for Vancouver’s cultural community over the course of their careers.

The 2015 Mayor's Arts Awards will be presented by Mayor Gregor Robertson at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre on Thursday, November 12.
