VSA Minnesota Honored

The annual awards, made in honor of the founder of the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, recognize individuals and organizations demonstrating exemplary work in the Minnesota arts community. Many friends of VSA arts of Minnesota were at the Ordway’s McKnight Theatre for the surprise announcement, which included a video presentation narrated by Steve Schmidt, director of Rochester Civic Music and past VSA arts of Minnesota board president.
Ordway Executive Director Patricia Mitchell presented the Sally Award to VSA Board President Sue Warner and Executive Director Craig Dunn to recognize “outstanding contributions to the state’s cultural life.” Dunn asked that all current and past board and staff members stand to be recognized by the audience of approximately 200.  

The Sally Award recognition includes a crystal sculpture and $2500 cash.
