supporting the arts in arizona

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." Thomas Merton

The 36th Annual Governor's Arts Awards recognizes individuals, arts and cultural organizations, educators and businesses for their devotion to the excellence of Arizona's arts and cultural community. The honorees selected are presented with an original piece of art for their efforts. It was rewarding to present "No I Will Not Do Your Nails" to the winner in the small business category, Galiano's Cafe! The Douglas-located establishment is more than a cafe; it has been central to revitalizing its community.
