Award Recognizes Organization’s Commitment to the Arts in Northeast D.C.

Ovation to Contribute $10,000

Washington, D.C.: Expanding upon its Stand for the Arts Awards initiative launched in 2017, Ovation, America’s only arts network, has partnered with Comcast to recognize Atlas Arts, an outstanding local arts organization in Washington, D.C. The initiative is part of the independent network’s national arts advocacy platform called Stand for the Arts and has committed $10,000 to support Atlas Arts, which fosters and presents stellar art in theatre, dance, music, vocal and choral work, spoken word and more in the H Street, Northeast community of Washington, D.C. The announcement was made yesterday by Sol Doten, SVP, Content Distribution and Marketing, Ovation.

Stand for the Arts Awards are granted based on the following criteria: empowering the community they service, building strategic partnerships in their community network through volunteerism, giving, and sponsorship and programs that fall within.

“Ovation is committed to advocating for organizations that provide access to the arts for all,” said Mr. Doten. “We greatly appreciate the grassroots work Atlas Arts and Comcast are doing in the Northeast community of Washington, D.C.”

“Comcast is proud to partner with Ovation TV to present its Stand for the Arts award to Atlas Arts,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President, Comcast’s Beltway Region. “We look forward to continuing to work with these organizations to create positive impacts for the arts and the communities of Washington, D.C.”
