The 2014 Arts Awards will take place on Friday, October 24, 2014 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm at the Fairview Park Marriott at 3111 Fairview Park Drive, Falls Church, VA 22042. The event recognizes the extraordinary contributions of artists and arts organizations, as well as the private sector that supports the arts in Fairfax County, the City of Fairfax, and the City of Falls Church.

“The Arts Awards celebrate our arts visionaries, leaders, and supporters who help to make our communities rich with cultural opportunities,” said Linda S. Sullivan, president and CEO of the Arts Council of Fairfax County. “The arts are essential to a thriving community.  Those that produce and nurture the arts are to be applauded. Each year, we look forward to gathering the arts, business and civic communities to show our appreciation,” Sullivan continued.
