The Studio@620 celebrates the power of "YES!" at the center of the 2016 Studio Honors. This annual celebration recognizes the contributions of individuals who enhance and strengthen our community. It is also The Studio's singular fundraising event each year and helps to ensure that we are able to continue our mission of being a "YES!" for the arts and social justice.

This year's Honors will bring the community together for an intimate and family-like experience, one that is warm and inviting, like you would expect from your favorite local meeting place--which is exactly where it will be held, at The Studio!  Attendees will enjoy a meal of mixed dishes from a variety of local restaurants contributing their favorite dishes, creating a pot-luck-chic offering.

The evening will include splendid entertainment and a specially curated art show by local creative phenom Chad Mize. More than 20 local artists will be contributing their talents, creating works that celebrate "YES!".

This year's honorees that will be recognized include:

Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse

Diane Bailey Morton

Darryl Rouson

Peter and Helen Wallace

Special Award of Merit to Astrid Ellis

and two emerging artists will receive the Ola Mae Jones award for dance.

Tastes and Treats will be provided by: Banyan Cafe, Bella Brava, Kahwa Coffee, Green Bench Brewery, Parkshore Grille, Red Mesa Cantina, Stillwaters Tavern

This year's Honors will be held at The Studio, celebrating at the same place where the fun originated!
