Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award for Arts Excellence
The Kathleen K. Seefeldt Awards for Arts excellence were established over 15 years ago by the Prince William Arts Council to recognize and celebrate the artists, arts organizations, volunteers, educators and business that build upon and sustain Ms. Seefeldt’s legacy of public service and support for the cultural arts.
Persons 18 years of age or older and organizations from Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park who live, work or volunteer in these locales may be nominated for the Seefeldt Award. Nominations should be made based on their significant or distinguished contribution to arts in the region. Previous winners cannot win in the same category for five years. Self-nominations are also accepted. Judges for the awards will include previous award winners as well as artists and community supporters of the arts.
