Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award for Arts Excellence
Don’t miss this special and inspirational annual event! Join the Prince William County Arts Council as they present the Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award for Arts Excellence – a spectacular program featuring amazing talent in every art genre. All of the arts will be represented in this year’s “Change” themed event; music, dance, theatre, visual art and literary art. There will be something for everyone!
The stars of the evening will be the award recipients. The Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award for Arts Excellence was established over 15 years ago by the Prince William County Arts Council to recognize and celebrate the artists, arts organizations, volunteers, educators and businesses 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 the 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.
This year’s event will be streamed on YouTube on May 27, 2021 at 7:30pm EST. Mark your calendars now for an inspiring event!
