National organization celebrates artistic achievements and leadership in the arts

 

MIAMI, FL (January 16, 2012) – On Saturday, January 14, 2012 YoungArts honored actor, director, activist and founder of Sundance Institute+ Film Festival Robert Redford with the Arison Award; visual artist and 1986 YoungArts winner Doug Aitken with the Alumni Award; and arts administrator Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, with the YoungArts Leadership Award, at the historic Gusman Center for the Performing Arts and the J.W. Marriott Marquis Hotel at An Affair of the Arts Performance and Gala.  The event raised nearly $1,000,000 to support student artists on both a regional and national level, with gala leadership graciously provided by Honorary Gala Chairs Micky and Madeleine Arison, and J.W. “Bill” and Donna Marriott, Jr.   SunTrust was the event’s presenting sponsor with additional support by MIAMI Magazine, GREY GOOSE® Vodka and The Collection. 

The gala evening brought together more than 800 guests, including prominent artists, community leaders, philanthropists and celebrities to celebrate the 2012 national YoungArts winners and the organization’s legacy of supporting artists at critical junctures in their lives.  Notable guests included Robert and Bylle Redford; Debi Mazar; Jacques d’Amboise; Bill T. Jones; Bruce Weber and Nan Bush; Lin Arison; Sarah Arison; J.W. “Bill” and Donna Marriott, Jr.; Rocco and Debby Landesman; Michael M. Kaiser; Dr. Eduardo J. Padrón; Jorge Luis and Marile Lopez; Angelica Maria, Angelica Vale and Otto Padrón; Shelly Berg; Facundo and Elizabeth Bacardi; Alberto and Maria Carvalho; Nicole Henry; and, Doug Aitken and Gemma Ponsa Salvador, among others. 

YoungArts, the core program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA) recognizes and supports America’s most talented 17-18 year olds in the visual, literary and performing arts. The organization’s mission is to identify emerging artists and assist them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development, and to raise the appreciation for, and support of, the arts in American society.

The dazzling evening began with a VIP reception at The Historic Alfred I. Dupont Building and performances by the 2012 YoungArts finalists, and was followed by a spectacular show at the Gusman Center by select YoungArts Alumni, including X Factor finalist Marcus Canty.  Following the performance, guests were transported to the J.W. Marriott Marquis for a cocktail reception, silent auction featuring specialty wines, exclusive travel packages, and jewelry and a variety of luxury items and experiences.  The J.W. Marriott Marquis ballroom was transformed into a lush red oasis with dramatic touches of black linens and more than 15,000 red roses.  WowFactor Marketing Group provided event management.  

 

About YoungArts:

YoungArts is the core program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA). The organization’s mission is to identify emerging artists, provide educational enrichment and assistance in their pursuit of the arts, and to raise the appreciation for and support of the arts in American society. Dedicated to inspiring and nurturing young artists, NFAA was founded in 1981 by businessman and visionary, the late Ted Arison, and his wife Lin. The YoungArts program identifies the next generation of emerging artists and contributes to the cultural vitality of the nation by investing in the artistic development of thousands of gifted artists in nine disciplines in the visual, literary and performing arts. At the request of The Commission on Presidential Scholars, which is appointed by the President of the United States, NFAA serves as the exclusive nominating agency for the U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.

The YoungArts program has honored over 16,000 young artists with more than $6 million in monetary awards and more than $100 million in college scholarship opportunities. Alumni go on to become leading professionals in their fields. Alumni include actresses Vanessa Williams and Kerry Washington, four-time Tony Award nominee Raúl Esparza, Executive Director of American Ballet Theatre Rachel Moore, recording artists Nicki Minaj and Chris Young, musician Jennifer Koh, choreographer Desmond Richardson, and internationally acclaimed multimedia artist Doug Aitken.
