Nominations sought for Arts Hall of Fame


The Capitol Theatre is accepting nominations for inductees to the Rome Arts Hall of Fame Class of 2019.

Nomination forms are available by request at the theatre and are due today, Feb. 2.

An induction ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, April 28 at 4 p.m. in the theatre.

The Rome Arts Hall of Fame honors individuals with a significant involvement in the literary performing or visual arts and a strong connection to Rome.

The Hall of Fame seeks to provide an opportunity to remember the past contributors to the city’s culture, to celebrate current outstanding artists, and to inspire young people in future artistic endeavors.

Inductees can be living or deceased. Once nominated, potential inductee names are automatically considered in subsequent years.

Last year’s inductee class included visual artist Daniel Bertrand, film projectionist Anthony DiPaolo, actress Denise Borek Morganti, drummer Jack Palmer Jr., trumpeteer and vocal director Scott Rutledge, fiber artist Philippa Schrader, and soprano/organist Carol Stack.

Past inductees have included Francis Bellamy, John Hayes O’Neill, Richard DeLutis, and Jake Meiss.
