Tina Zlody, co-founder of stART on the Street, has been named the 2012 recipient of ArtsWorcester Award.

The ArtsWorcester Award is given annually to an individual who has made an exceptional effort to cultivate, nurture, and support the artistic and cultural community of this city. The presentation of the 31st ArtsWorcester Award will take place at ArtsWorcester's annual meeting on August 29th, at 5:30 pm.

In 2002, Zlody and fellow culture activists organized the first stART on the Street on Main Street, attended by a few thousand people. Now on Park Avenue, the 10th Anniversary Edition of stART on the Street will draw 50,000 attendees to see the work of 250 artists and 75 performers. The original fall festival is now part of a year-round calendar, including spring and holiday festivals in different venues across the city. They remain organized and operated entirely by volunteers.

"Tina's boundless creativity, energy, and devotion are unstoppable," says ArtsWorcester Executive Director Juliet Feibel. "StART on the Street is only one of her many contributions to this city and its artistic community."

In her day job, Zlody works as the program and events coordinator for the Visual and Performing Arts Department at Clark University. For the last four years, Zlody has also served as a board member and is currently Chair of the Worcester Arts Council, which promotes the cultural affairs of the City of Worcester and allocates funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
