Last night our Executive Director, Nannette Maciejunes, received a South Side Settlement House and Nationwide Easton Community Foundation Arts Freedom Award.
For any of you that have had the pleasure of meeting Nannette, you know that she is a tireless advocate for the arts in Columbus. Her enthusiasm and passion are infectious. As CCAD President Denny Griffith said, she is the greatest secular evangelist for the arts we have.
South Side Settlement House has created an event highlighting the importance of art in creating a climate of social justice and concern. It honors those who have utilized their talents to elevate the human condition through art.
Nannette was one of four recipients of the 2010 awards including Suanne Goings, a painter and mural artist, Chief Baba Shongo Obadina, a master plumber, community activist and artst, and John Sunami, a painter, sculptor, designer, and poet.
Congratulations to all the winners!
The staff of the Columbus Museum of Art
