QSFA and City of Quincy Arts Awards Were Announced Today

Arts Award winners, Jeff Dorsey

The Annual Quincy Society of Fine Arts/ City of Quincy Arts Awards Luncheon was hosted by the Quincy Exchange Club today at the Stoney Creek Inn. David Boster, the Q.S.F.A. President, took the opportunity to discuss the international and national search that took place for a new Executive Director.  After an extensive search they realized the best person for the job was right under their nose in Lenny Bart. 

Bart was introduced and then took the time to share some statistics which included the following.  49% of Americans attended some sort of visual arts event last year. 25% attended some sort of outdoor arts event and 50% of Americans either created or shared someone’s art last year.

Mayor Kyle Moore had the honors of announcing the winners of the various awards. Prior to the announcement, Mayor Moore shared that every dollar spent on the arts translates to 3 or 4 dollars to the city.

Here were the winners of the 2013 City of Quincy Arts Awards sponsored by the Quincy Herald Whig and WGEM-TV:

Volunteer Leadership Award…………..Maggie Strong

Individual Artist & Teacher Award……..Anne Stupavsky

Business Leadership Award…Mark Ehrhart of Kohl Cash & Carry

Original Arts Award…Quincy Community Theatre and Dan Conboy

All of the award winners received original prints created by Blaine Barnes’ art classes at Quincy Junior High School. By the way, the awards date back to 1981 when George Irwin first established the ceremony.
