Presented by the City of Yuma’s Division of Arts and Culture, Tribute of the Muses celebrates and recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to Yuma’s arts community. The coveted Tribute of the Muses award is a distinguished legacy award that honors an individual or couple who have shown exemplary devotion and excellence in the arts. The Helios Award recognizes an up-and-coming voice in the arts.

As Tribute of the Muses celebrates more than two decades of arts excellence in Yuma, two new awards are offered this year:

  • The Odyssey Award is for an outstanding organization, business, or group.
  • The Apollo Award is for an outstanding arts educator.

“The two new awards this year are an exciting addition to the ceremony,” said Arts and Culture Program Manager Lindsay Benacka. “In the past few years, we’ve seen major growth in nominations, and hope that the new awards further the goal of honoring creative community members and innovative organizations.”

The Freedom Library is raising $15,000 to bring Liberty to Yuma, Arizona. 

Be a part of Yuma history with your contribution.  

A brick in your name will be laid at the base of Liberty. 

A 9 1/2 foot replica of the Statue of Liberty is being designed by artist/sculptor Jud Turner of Eugene, Oregon.  The statue will be made of steel coated by copper and will stand on a six inch pedestal in front of The Freedom Library.  From a distance you will be able to discern the replica as the Statue of Liberty.  However, upon closer inspection you will be able to see the unique artwork involved in her creation.  Liberty will be composed of representations of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, the tools of industry and the men and women who helped develop liberty in America.

Go to judturner.com to view the quality of the artist's designs which are exhibited in various places around the world.

With just over $2,000 raised so far, please consider a contribution to help bring Liberty to Yuma!!

Dedication of Liberty is slated for Constitution Day, September 17, 2021.
