I was delighted and surprised to receive an email last week telling me my husband and I have been jointly nominated for a Nickel Plate Arts Award. Nickel Plate Arts is a not-for-profit arts venue in Noblesville, Indiana, where we do much of our creative work. Evidently, someone has nominated us for the Arts Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Neat!
I especially like that our mysterious nominator sees my husband, and me as a creative team! Awwwwwww… And here we’ve only been married 6 weeks! But our artistic collaborations date all the way back to my freshman year of college, 19 *cough* years ago at Butler University. He directed the Greek tragedy, Oedipus at Colonus, and I wrote the incidental music for it. I had the biggest crush on him…
We’ve already reserved 5 tickets (with our parents) for the awards event on Saturday, September 16th from 6-9pm. Evidently we get live music, dinner, drinks, activities, and interactive art activities. Now THAT’S an awards ceremony! Anyone can purchase a ticket to join us. More info on the Nickel Plate website.
We’re honored to be in the company of many talented artists and arts organizations. I know several of them and they deserve the recognition!
