ATLANTA (January 22, 2015) - The Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts will present the fifth annual CCA Awards on Friday, January 30 at 6:30 p.m. in the Schwarz Center for Performing Arts.
These awards spotlight core values of the Center for Creativity & Arts, including discovery, societal impact, courageous inquiry, innovation, collaboration, human spirit, and the exploration of new frontiers. Awards will be given to Emory staff, alumni and students, as well as community members who have made significant artistic and administrative contributions to the arts in metro- Atlanta.
For the first time, the CCA is awarding an Arts Advocate Award. This year, that award will be presented to Atlanta radio personality Lois Reitzes, in recognition of her significant impact on the arts landscape in Atlanta. A prominent fixture at WABE since 1979, Lois is the host of City Lights, Second Cup Concert, ASO Broadcasts and Spivey Soiree.
Other award recipients are: Rachel May of Synchronicity Theatre, Richard Garner of Georgia Shakespeare, Dr. Richard Prior and Elizabeth Horner of Emory University, Park Krausen of Theater du Reve, William Massey of Winship Infusion Center, Joseph Matthews, and Dr. Angelika Pohl.
