LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Arts!Longview has been selected as one of three finalists for the 2022 President’s Awards Program for Best Downtown Partner.

The award is sponsored by the Texas Downtown Association to recognize outstanding projects and people in cities across the state. Main Street Coordinator for Downtown Longview Nick Mayfield says they have been working closely with Executive Director of Arts!Longview Christina Cavazos on many projects, including murals and banners, since Longview received a Cultural District designation.

“When I looked through all the different categories, nominating Arts!Longview as a downtown partner seemed like a no-brainer to me,” Mayfield said. “They do a lot for the community, from the murals to Artwalk, bringing in three thousand people a year to initiatives to all the wonderful businesses that we have downtown.”

Mayfield says this was the first time Main Street nominated anyone for an award. Winners will be announced on November 2 at the 2022 Texas Downtown Conference in San Marcos.
