2013 Governor's Leadership in the Arts Award
by Utah Arts & Museums
The 2013 Governor's Leadership in the Arts Awards were presented at a luncheon concurrent with the
Mountain West Arts Conference at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center.
Awards were presented in the following categories:
-Individual Leadership in the Arts - Patricia A. Richards
-Community Leadership in the Arts - Gunnison City
-Education Leadership in the Arts-Kim Schaefer
-Individual Leadership in the Arts - Wally Bloss
The Governor's Awards were created in 1980 to honor
individuals and organizations who encourage
and support arts and culture in Utah. In 2002 the awards
were put on hold as the state prepared for the Olympics.
As part of the first annual Mountain West Conference on the Arts
the awards were reinstated in 2007. In a time when innovative
artistic and cultural projects are continually emerging
throughout the state, we look forward to many future
years of honoring Utah's artistic visionaries and supporters.
