Founders of Downtown ART+SOUND event honored by foundation
The founders of Medford's Downtown ART+SOUND festival, which debuted last month, have received a CLIPS Nano Fund Award.
Diane Bentley Raymond, executive director of the Metro Medford Downtown Association; Cammy Davis, art director of the new festival; and Evan Wilson, the festival's music producer, will be honored today for their work on the inaugural event in a noon gathering at the Sparta Building at 12 Riverside Ave.
CLIPS Nano Fund, managed by Wayne Ching, supports community endeavors. The award reflects the recipients' contribution to the community, sustainable vision and the collaboration, all factors that are important to Ching. The recipients will each receive $250 awards.
Raymond said she expects to see the event grow each year.
