The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) Awards Ceremony is the premier event of New York Archives Week. It is the only awards program in the Metropolitan New York City region dedicated to honoring the work of archivists and those who support archival programs. The awards acknowledge distinguished work and long term achievements in our profession.
A.R.T. began the Awards Ceremony in 1989, as an integral part of the goal for Archives Week to “increase awareness among our constituencies, resource allocators and the general public of archives’ contributions to the quality of life in New York City.”
The 2013 Awards Ceremony will be held at New York Junior League, 130 East 80th Street, New York City, on October 10, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
