  • #6,7 and 10 need to be way higher on the list with GCAC leaning towards 1st. With the simple addition of the Columbusarts.com website being the best local thing offered to artists this year. After the horrible storm that vendoprs faced at the Arts Festival the GCAC hung strong and followed up offering much support to those effected as well as continued a stellar event the rest of the weekend. Major personal Kudos to the GCAC for everything that you have done for the artists locally and that which you will continue to provide in years to come!

    FAD will be in the running for every art award in the city within a year or two if the current progress continues the way expected.

    CMC deserves a ton of respect for all the fun stuff they offer and are involved in!

    Not to play debbie downer in the land of winners here, but what did Couchfire do this year to deserve a spot on the list let alone top 4?

  • Wow! Thanks so much for including us. And thanks for the kind words Core…we are just honored to be included. xo.
