A state organization will recognize Ryan Heise and the Village of Egg Harbor for its commitment to the arts next month at a ceremony to be held in Wisconsin Dells. Arts Wisconsin named Heise as one of its recipients for the Arts in the Community Award. According to a release from the organization, Heise has been a guiding force for the development of the Public Arts Initiative in Egg Harbor, which helped commission a number of works to be on display throughout the village. Heise says he is excited to share the award with the community.
Public arts efforts in Rhinelander will also be recognized when Heise accepts the award in Wisconsin Dells on October 25th.
