“Congratulations to this year’s ARTS Awards recipients who are quite simply the best of the best,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “This program is a year-round initiative to identify and then recognize individuals and companies for their innovation and hard work, and we applaud this year’s amazing honorees.” 

At this year’s ARTS Awards eighteen industry leaders, style experts, and celebrity designers presented the awards. Guest presenters included Beatriz Ball, Julia Buckingham, Corey Damon Jenkins, Donna Moss, Greg O’Neal, Tamara Day, and Nancy Price. Also in attendance were the ARTS Awards judges, the ARTS Awards committee members from ART, and members of the ARTS Awards nominating panel.

“The ARTS Awards serve to honor and inspire, and this year’s winners are an incredible list of leaders,” said Sharon Davis, executive director of ART. “No other group personifies the strength of innovation and creativity. We congratulate them after a well-deserved evening of celebration.”
