Prizery gets trio of recognitions / November 04, 2009
The Prizery community arts center has gotten a trio of honors recently: inclusion in the prestigious Jazz Presenters Network, plus citations and photographs in both a widely-distributed booklet from the U.S. National Park Service and in the Main Street Monitor.

In the Jazz Presenters Network, The Prizery joins theaters and stages up and down the East Coast in a network designed to promote and preserve the uniquely American art form of jazz music. The honor comes with funding to underwrite high-quality jazz musicians’ performances at The Prizery, plus paid professional-development opportunities for Prizery staff.

The Prizery was one of only three new presenters chosen for the 20-member network; the other two were in Washington, D.C., and a New York City suburb. The program is administered by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

The National Park Service booklet cites The Prizery as an example of successful historic tax credits at the federal level. The booklet is distributed nationwide.

The Virginia Main Street Monitor, a quarterly e-publication of Virginia’s Department of Housing and Community Development’s Main Street Program, which encourages downtown revitalization, showcases The Prizery as a prime example of combining architectural preservation with the lively arts.

Located in Downtown South Boston at 700 Bruce St., The Prizery receives support from the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
