Here a the photos from the gala event by Amy Palomar

MCB was asked to come down to cover The 2008 GUVVY's presented by ARTSERVE which is a statewide nonprofit organization that seeks to cultivate the creative potential of Michigan’s arts and cultural sector to enhance the public health and well-being of Michigan, its people and communities. Look for a follow up from Amy Palomar as she attends the black tie event tonight.

ArtServe Michigan is also the producer of Michigan’s longest running, largest statewide awards gala recognizing leaders in the arts; the 23rd Annual Governor’s Awards for Arts & Culture (The Guvvys), which take place Thursday, November 13, 2008 at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA).

This year’s International Achievement Award (IAA) winners are Grammy-nominated Musician Bob James and his longtime friend and colleague director/producer/writer/lyricist Jack O’Brien.
In total, 22 artists, arts and cultural organizations, arts educators and civic and business leaders from across the state of Michigan will be named as Guvvy honorees for their dedication to arts and culture, within 10 different categories.

The Guvvys are a two-day celebration that also includes the Student Event on November 14, 2008 where middle and high school students explore creative career options through a talk-back session with the International Award recipients and hands-on workshops.

The Student Event is designed to inspire young creative minds to explore creative career possibilities.
