Union City Artist Awards 2014

On Friday, June 20, 2014 the City of Union City hosted The Third Annual Union City Artist Awards.  This has become the most anticipated and most important art event held in the City... and the most elegant.  Each year, the event brings together a who's who from the arts community.  If you're an artist, this is the place to be seen. Held at the beautiful William V. Musto Cultural Center, the standing-room-only event began with a Red Carpet, followed by live music, refreshments, and the awards ceremony.

This year the elegant red carpet event featured live music by Mas Alla; a special performance by West Hudson Opera Company; as well as a photo exhibit by renowned Forbes Magazine photographer, Glen Davis
