Thanks to our new age of austerity, the future of city grants for the arts is uncertain, but the non-monetary Mayor’s Arts Awards continue to highlight Seattle’s outstanding creative people and organizations. This year is no exception, with honors going to Donald Byrd, long-time artistic director of Spectrum Dance Theatre; Jack Straw Productions, a 50-year-old audio-arts institution; Quinton Morris, one of the city’s most accomplished young musicians [see page 24]; On the Boards, home of the edgiest performance art in town; Pratt, the Central District’s center for fine arts education; and Tet in Seattle, which produces the city’s Vietnamese new year’s celebration.

There is a ceremony for these recipients Thursday, Sept. 1 on Seattle Center’s North Fountain Lawn.
