Oct 21, 2009
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - ArtServe Michigan, a statewide nonprofit advocacy organization for arts, culture and arts education, has selected Tanner Friedman to provide media relations for Ignite 09: Uniting Voices for Arts and Culture in Michigan event, an alternative for this year's Governor's Awards for Arts and Culture.
On November 10 from 6-9 p.m. at the Max M. Fisher Music Center, arts supporters will gather to celebrate the contributions of arts and culture across the state. The event showcases the increased need to generate collective support for arts programs; the importance of arts and culture in building vibrant communities and transforming lives; and the pervasiveness of the arts throughout our living experience.
"Facing the lowest state-funded budget for arts and culture in the last decade, Ignite 09 is critical in generating operating and program funding so we can continue to lead statewide advocacy efforts and capacity building for artists, as well as arts and cultural organizations," said Jennifer Goulet, president of ArtServe Michigan.
The event will begin with a strolling dinner reception, followed by the program and awards ceremony that includes performances by The Detroit Symphony Orchestra Civic Youth Ensembles: Jazz Combo and Mosaic Youth Theater. In addition, a significant portion of the evening will be dedicated to recognizing and honoring the historical depth of support Michigan's automotive industry has offered to arts and culture by extending its first-ever Arts Legacy Awards to Chrysler, Ford Motor Company and General Motors. Admission is $50 per ticket.
