CAC Wins State's Highest Honor

The Cambridge Arts Council was recently named as a recipient of the 2003 Commonwealth Award. One of six awards made statewide, CAC was designated as the state's leading "Community Organization" for its significant work in integrating the arts and humanities into the Cambridge community. The Commonwealth Award is given every two years to individual artists, humanists and cultural organizations for "outstanding contributions in the advancement of excellence, access, education or diversity in the arts, humanities or interpretive sciences". Recipients are identified through a statewide nomination process and chosen by a committee of arts and business leaders.

The six 2003 recipients were drawn from a pool of 150 nominations and awards were made in five categories. The Commonwealth Awards were presented at a luncheon ceremony on March 25, 2003 at the Sheraton Framingham as part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Arts in the Balance conference. The Commonwealth Awards and luncheon were sponsored by FleetBoston Financial.
