Sunday, October 3, 2021

In observance of National Arts and Humanities Month, the San Marcos Arts Commission presented its 9th Annual SMArts Advocacy Awards to individuals and organizations who are making significant contributions to the San Marcos arts and cultural scene. The awards were held Sept. 30. The honorees were Ana Baer Carrillo, Kelly Stone and Christine Terrell.

Carrillo is a choreographer and instructor at Texas State University. Stone is a performer, baby mama, author and comedian. Terrell is an artist, volunteer and San Marcos Art League board member. Her husband, Randall, accepted the award on her behalf.

This was the ninth year the San Marcos Arts Commission has presented SMArts Advocacy Awards as part of its ongoing efforts to elevate, incubate and expand arts and cultural efforts in San Marcos. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no awards presentation in 2020.

The purpose of the San Marcos Arts (SMArts) Award program is to encourage and recognize outstanding support and enhancement of the arts and cultural life of San Marcos; to recognize the important contributions of artists and arts organizations to the quality of life and economic vitality of the community; and to encourage volunteerism and business participation with local arts organizations.
