Three Colorado Springs arts and business leaders recognized at lunch

GZ2Arts supporters in the business world were recognized Tuesday for their contribution to the city’s creative life at the sixth annual 2013 Business and Arts Awards Luncheon.

The event honored The Ivywild School and The Mining Exchange – a Wyndham Grand Hotel in the categories of creative workplace and philanthropy, respectively. Ron Brasch and Una Ng-Brasch received an award as business leaders in the arts.

The awards are sponsored by COPPeR, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, and the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance.

“The arts are a priority in all we do,” said Amanda Bristol, a co-founder of Ivywild. “They bring a richness and bring out the best in people. You work better in a vibrant atmosphere where you’re not just staring at four blank walls. You need to be filled up.”
