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. Our creative industries create jobs, foster innovation, help to drive our economy and enhance the lives of all Coloradans.”

 

“The arts support the economic foundation of our City and impact each and every Denver citizen, both directly and indirectly,” Mayor Hancock said. “In 2011, our area’s art community contributed $1.76 billion in economic activity, including growth in jobs, volunteering and economic impact. These figures prove the important and necessary role arts and culture play in Denver as we move forward.”

 

 “When arts and business partner, we see increased vitality, civic engagement, and innovation.  The whole community benefits,” Deborah Jordy, Executive Director, CBCA said.
