Arts and Business Partnership Awards 2019

Arts and Business Partnership Awards 2019

The Arts and Business Partnership Award is a national recognition given annually to businesses that have mutually beneficial, innovative, and sustained partnerships with the arts. Each year, winners of this award are celebrated at The Arts and Business Partnership Awards Gala in New York City and become part of a network of like-minded businesses and leaders. These companies set the standard for excellence and serve as role models for others to follow.

For outstanding contributions, we also honor an individual arts-champion with the Leadership Award and an extraordinary partnership between a business and its arts partner is awarded  the David Rockefeller pARTnership Award.

The honorees and their partnerships are promoted nationally as exemplars in creating dynamic arts and business partnerships. We are honored to announce the honorees below. 

For assistance or more information, please contact Danielle Iwata at or  212.223.2787.
