GOVERNOR'S AWARDS FOR THE ARTS IN PA
Thursday, September 20, 2012 @ 7:00pm
Erie will host the Governor’s Awards for the Arts, marking the first time the event has been held in northwest Pennsylvania. The Governor’s Awards is a celebration of arts in Pennsylvania inaugurated in 1980 by Governor Dick Thornburgh and continued by every Governor. The Awards represent the Commonwealth’s highest recognition for excellence in the arts and celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2010.
Free and open to the public, the event will be held at the historic Warner Theater, 811 State Street, downtown Erie. The celebration will also include a showcase of community arts and a ticketed reception.
Two local organizations stepped forward to host the event for Erie: the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership and the Erie Downtown Arts and Cultural Coalition.
