Cleveland Arts Prize will recognize the recipients of the 2006 Cleveland Arts Prizes July 7, 2006 at Public Square, preceding the annual free concert by the Cleveland Orchestra.

The tens of thousands expected to attend the concert will be introduced to the Arts Prize winners and their work via a video presentation produced by ideastream, shown on giant screens at 8:30pm. 

The awards will be presented to the artists at a ticketed ceremony and reception in the English Oak Room beginning at 5:30pm. The public is invited and may purchase tickets on-line at

After a two-year hiatus to redefine and revitalize the organization, The Cleveland Arts Prize reduced the number of monetary prizes from five to three, increased the monetary amounts of the prizes and became more inclusive within each of the artistic disciplines. For the first time in its 46- year history, the Arts Prize is awarding an emerging artist ($5,000), two mid-career artists ($2,500) and presenting two honorary awards for a lifetime of achievement. 

The 2006 artist honorees are:

Ryan Lott, Composer, Emerging Artist

John Nottingham & John Spirk, Industrial Designers, Mid-career Artists

Andrew Borowiec, Photographer, Mid-career Artists

Dianne McIntyre, Choreographer, Lifetime of Achievement

Harvey Pekar, writer, Lifetime of Achievement

Artists and special prize candidates for ’06 were nominated by the public and active members of the arts community.
