OMAHA, Neb – Nearly 200 artists, performers and musicians are among the nominees for the 2012 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards, to be held Feb. 12, 2012 at the Hilton in North Downtown Omaha. The annual red carpet event honors supreme talent from the world of performing arts, visual arts and music.
This year’s list was compiled from hundreds of public nominations submitted online during the open ballot session at oea-awards.com. Hancock & Dana, one of Omaha’s largest locally-owned accounting firms, tallied the top five nominations in each category.
A few names, such as visual artist Tim Guthrie, appear more than once on the nominee list. This year, Guthrie was nominated three times, and is a hopeful in the Best Visual Artist, Best 2-D Visual Artist and Best New Media Visual Artist categories.
Ticket information as well as performances will be posted soon. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
