WPA is extremely proud and grateful to be the recipient of the 2014 Mayor's Arts Award for Excellence in Service to the Arts. The Mayors Arts Awards are the highest honor conferred by the District of Columbia for artistic excellence and service among artists, arts organizations, and arts patrons.
Our members and participating artists share equally in this award for ensuring our programming is of the highest caliber. Thanks to all of our supporters and patrons for allowing us to do what we do. And thank you to all of our artists for continuing to experiment and explore and create. You all make this city, this community, this world a better place for your efforts.
Many thanks to the DC Commission the Arts & Humanities, Mayor Vincent Gray, the DC City Council, the enlightened and distinguished jury who selected us, and our fellow finalists and nominees who continue to set the bar so very high for the arts in DC.
