2019 Santa Monica Arts Foundation Arts Leadership Awards

About this Event

The Arts Leadership Awards honor exemplary leaders who support Santa Monica's artistic, creative, and cultural communities. The awards honor individuals – including arts supporters, artists, and youth – and businesses or organizations.

Five awards will be presented to Santa Monicans whose efforts support the City’s artistic, creative, and cultural community, making the City an exceptionally vibrant place to live. This year, for the first time, youth awards will be presented, and the ceremony will feature performances by local artists, and videos about the awardees. The ceremony is free and open to the public.

The awardees are:

Marisa Caichiolo is being recognized with the Arts Patron Award for her work as Director and Curator of Building Bridges Art Exchange. For over a decade, the cultural programs, including contemporary art exhibitions, lectures, workshops and educational activities, have provided the community with engaging experiences, created opportunities for international and local artists through residencies, and established international relationships.

The dance company Jacob Jonas The Company is being honored with the Artist in the Community/Bruria Finkel Award for creating a platform for local and international artists to present new and exciting work in Santa Monica through To the Sea: Dance Concerts on the Pier, as well as offering artists exposure via their savvy social media outreach.

Laemmle Arts, led by Greg Laemmle and Sheryl Myerson, is receiving the Creative Community Innovator Award to recognize the dynamic arts programs that are presented at the Laemmle Monica Film Center. Laemmle Live is a performing arts series where emerging artists and professional performers from local schools and organizations celebrate our diverse community with live performance. Art in the Arthouse connects audiences with visual art by turning part of the Monica Film Center (and other Laemmle theaters outside of Santa Monica) into art galleries.

Carmen Casillas is being honored with the Youth Leadership in the Arts Award for her work as captain of two of Santa Monica High School’s dance teams where she teaches and trains students to express themselves through dance and further improve their dancing and artistry skills.

Isabelle D'Amico is being honored with the Youth Leadership in the Arts Award for her work as a youth representative as part of the 18th Street Arts Center's Gallery Advisory board, where she advocates for diverse youth involvement in community art projects. At SAMOHI she is producer of the SAMOHI Film Festival and Executive Producer and Technical Director of the student run, SAMOHighlights, a school TV news show.
