Inaugurated in September 2013, the Cornerstone of the
Arts Award honors individuals who have had a significant and long lasting
impact on San Jose’s art and cultural landscape. The award is given
annually to a person who has provided enduring leadership in the advancement of
arts and culture in San Jose and increased the understanding of the value of
the arts in creating a thriving community.
The San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs and the Arts Commission have extended the deadline for the Business Support for the Arts Award. Join us in celebrating the value that the arts bring to our community by nominating an inspiring business that has improved the quality of life in San Jose through its support for the arts. The Business Support for the Arts award will be presented at the annual Cornerstone of the Arts event in October 2017.
