Winning a MARTY Award has become a symbol of Excellence in the Arts
The MARTYS is a distinguished and elegant red carpet event recognizing excellence in the arts in Mississauga. It’s been said that civilizations are measured by what they Celebrate and in Mississauga, celebrating outstanding works of creativity across all arts disciplines has been MAC’s honour for 22 years.
Who gets an award? Nominees are chosen based on criteria demonstrating excellence in their work. The Mississauga Arts Council also recognizes the contributions made to our thriving arts community as part of its mandate to build a great city through cultivating the arts.
Who attends the event? Artists, including nominees and their family members and friends are present, as well as prominent Mississauga politicians, celebrities and business leaders. We also see arts patrons, volunteers, and so many engaged art lovers in the community. The cocktail area is lively and our emerging artists love to meet the movers and shakers in the city.
The 2017 Marty Awards were held at the Mississauga Convention centre and the list of past winners can be seen here.
