The Kennesaw State University College of the Arts will present its third annual Flourish Awards at a luncheon on Sept. 14, at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
The awards, honoring those who have helped the arts flourish in Georgia, will be presented to Theatre in the Square of Marietta (arts organization); Seth Hopkins, executive director the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville (arts leader); Marietta High School dance teacher Chiazor Nwabude (arts educator); and Lee Rhyant, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Marietta (community/public service).
More than 200 guests are expected to attend the 11:30 a.m. luncheon, which is anticipated to raise more than $100,000 to benefit scholarship endowments and student-learning initiatives in the KSU College of the Arts (tickets are $100). The event’s theme, “Be Inspired,” spotlights the role the arts play in reinvigorating people through creative activity and new ways of looking at the world.
