NV Energy Shares Its Arts & Business Story Statewide

2015 BCA 10 honoree NV Energy employees have traveled across Nevada to share the story of their successful arts and business partnerships and celebrate their BCA 10 recognition. NV Energy has been supportive of the arts for nearly 30 years through the NV Energy Foundation, and in the past 10 years alone, the foundation has committed $3.4 million towards arts and culture initiatives in rural and urban Nevada.

 

In collaboration with the Nevada Arts Council, the agency who nominated NV Energy for the award, the announcements began in Reno, Nevada on June 30, 2015, hosted by Arts for All Nevada at the Lake Mansion. The strategy was to invite local media and representatives of arts organizations supported by NV Energy and the NV Energy Foundation from throughout the state to learn of this prestigious and first-time award for a business in Nevada.

 

Subsequent events were hosted in Elko, Nevada on July 6 at the Northeastern Nevada Museum and in Las Vegas on July 15 at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. The host locations represented the diversity of communities in Nevada from the western frontier to Nevada’s most urban centers. Nevada Arts Council Board Members were present at each event to provide the background and context of the award.

 

“The Nevada Arts Council submitted this nomination because the Nevada Arts Council and NV Energy and the NV Energy Foundation are committed to ensuring that Nevada remains rich in arts,” said Susan Boskoff, executive director of the Nevada Arts Council. “We mutually believe that the arts are absolutely essential to the wellbeing of our state - creating vibrant communities, diversifying local economies and providing our children a complete education.”

 

“At NV Energy we believe the arts are essential to the quality of life for all Nevadans wherever they live,” said Paul Caudill, NV Energy president and CEO. Caudill is also chairman of the NV Energy Foundation. “The arts build vibrant communities - whether large or small, urban, or rural. Not only are the arts good for communities, they are good for business and are critical to economic diversification, tourism and educational reform strategies. While this award is an honor, the recognition is really a reflection on the thriving arts organizations working so hard every day to create art opportunities for all of us to enjoy.”
