The Bermuda Arts Council [BAC] will recognize persons who have made significant contributions to the arts in our community on Sunday [Oct 20].

A spokesperson said, “The Arts Council’s Annual Awards Ceremony presents Lifetime Achievement Awards to persons who are respected in their art form and who have created a significant body of original work that is representative of the Bermudian spirit; Founders Awards to persons who have been pioneers in their respective art form, and thus have been mentors/ role models for their fellow artists and the generations to follow; and Patron Awards to persons who have been benefactors to the Bermuda arts community.”

BAC Chair Ms Jennifer Phillips says, “The Bermuda Arts Council is committed to developing and improving the knowledge, understanding and practice of the arts in Bermuda. An important element of this objective is to publicly acknowledge the work of our local artists.
