Nominations Now Open for Sixth Annual MasterMind Awards
It's that time again. Nominations are now open for the sixth annual MasterMind Awards competition honoring the best in Houston arts.
So who deserves a MasterMind Award this time?
Once again, the Houston Press is looking for artists of all types who are changing our creative and cultural landscape in the Houston area. Past honorees have included theater, opera and dance companies; museums; chefs and filmmakers.
Last year's winners were Opera in the Heights and its artistic director Enrique Carreon-Robledo; Karen Stokes Dance, a modern dance company known for quirky work and its namesake founder; and Stark Naked Theatre and its co-founders and husband-and-wife team Philip Lehl and Kim Tobin. All, we're happy to note, are still going strong.
Once again, we're calling on you for nominations. If you know any of these life-changing artistic types, please send in their names and something about them to us. If you want to nominate yourself, by all means do so. And please don't limit yourself to the genres of past winners. We're very proud of all of them, but we'd also be pleased to see some scriptwriters, street performers and show choirs in the mix.
Three winners will each receive a check for $2,000 along with a plaque at a special ceremony that is part of the Press's annual Artopia Party, celebrated at the Winter Street Studios on Saturday, January 25, 2014.
A special presale on Artopia tickets starts Wednesday at 10 a.m. and runs through Thursday, November 14 at 10 p.m. GA tickets are $45, VIP $75. Use the promo code CULTURE.
