The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission has announced the cancellation of this year’s Mayor’s Awards in the Arts Event, which was scheduled for October 7 at the Hagadone Event Center.  Any nominations that have been received will be carried over for consideration for an award at next year’s awards ceremony. 

COVID-19 concerns led to the cancellation of the event.  Coeur d’Alene City Administrator/Arts Commission Liaison Troy Tymesen said, “We understand that the annual Mayor’s Awards in the Arts is a highly anticipated and valuable event for the arts community, and are disappointed that current circumstances will prevent us from recognizing our artist contributions this year.  We look forward to next year’s event and thank our citizens for their continued patience and understanding during the pandemic.”
