An annual award presented by the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society, the Elisha Darlin Arts Award honors an individual or group that has made an outstanding contribution to the arts. Named after the late Elisha Darlin, an educator and founding board member of Dubuque County Fine Arts Society, past recipients of the award include Ruth and Russ Nash, Sue Riedel, Lenore Howard and Doug Donald, Gail Chavenelle, Sandye Voight, Gene Tully, Fran and Ellen Henkels, former Dubuque City Councilwoman Ann Michalski, Connie Twining and Stormy Mochal, and the Dubuque Cultural Preservation Committee, among many others. Last year's award recipient was Dr. William Intriligator, conductor of the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra.
This year, the Fine Arts Society presents the award to Greg Orwoll. Greg's 31 years with the Colts Drum & Bugle Corps created a rich and encouraging environment for the members. The Colts have an international reach, bringing students to Dubuque to learn, compete, and experience the joy of expression through music and motion. The award ceremony will include a performance by Dubuque Senior High Band and some other fun surprises.
Dubuque County Fine Arts Society will present the Elisha Darlin Arts Award on Friday, March 28th at the Five Flags Theater. The public is encouraged to attend. Find more information at www.dcfas.org.
