ARTS Pick: Arthur C. Greene Rising Star Awards

ARTS Pick: Arthur C. Greene Rising Star Awards

“Talent is an accident of genes—and a responsibility,” said the late actor Alan Rickman. For the past 20 years, the Piedmont Council for the Arts has identified more than 250 area high school students as bearers of that responsibility through its annual Arthur C. Greene Rising Star Awards. This year, teachers and nonprofit organizations have helped identify yet another group of outstanding artists in a range of genres, including film, visual arts, drama, music and writing, for a showcase featuring student performances, an awards ceremony and a reception.

Friday, March 3. Free, 7pm. The Haven, 112 W. Market St.
