Congratulations to this year’s Margaret K. Williams Awards, granted by Pierce County’s Arts Commission and Arts and Services Division for artistic leadership and innovation. The award, now in its 22nd year, has no money attached but plenty of glory: Past winners have included Dale Chihuly and your very own The News Tribune, both 1994 recipients.
This year’s winners are watercolorist David Craig, art co-op powerhouse Linda Danforth, dancer Candi Hall who founded the D.A.S.H. arts school on the Hilltop, textile artist Barbara Lee Smith and concrete diva Lynn Di Nino, who also spearheads such community events as First Night and 100th Monkey parties.
The award ceremony is this Thursday November 5 at Tacoma Art Museum, with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and ceremony at 6:30 p.m. RSVP is necessary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
