Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper speaks at the 2013 CBCA Business for the Arts Awards.The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA) has announced the winners of the 2013 Business for the Arts Awards, Colorado’s signature event honoring companies and individuals for their exemplary partnerships and engagement with the arts, to a sold-out crowd of arts, business, and civic leaders at the Seawell Grand Ballroom this afternoon. 

 

“Congratulations to the arts and business leaders recognized today,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said. “Colorado is known for its craft breweries, galleries and world-class entertainment venues.

These figures prove the important and necessary role arts and culture play in Denver as we move forward.”
