Celebrate Legacy
50+ Years of Artistic Freedom and Leadership

You’re invited to the 2024 Summer Awards Celebration, which is the primary summer arts and community event on the Outer Cape. This highly anticipated evening promises to be inspiring, memorable, and fun, with experiential moments that highlight our mission.
 
During this event, we will be presenting the 2024 Distinguished Service in the Arts Award to National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes, arts and community leader Lynne Kortenhaus, and acclaimed multidisciplinary artist Jacolby Satterwhite. The Distinguished Service in the Arts Award was established by the Fine Arts Work Center in 1977 and has honored a prestigious roster of creative innovators for their significant contributions to contemporary arts, literature, and philanthropy.
 
Guests will be able to enjoy cocktails, including a tequila bar, along with the sounds of DJ Chris Roxx, followed by a seated farm-to-table dinner inspired by the Cape’s seasonal bounty. The evening will feature a special performance by stage and screen actor Raúl Esparza, accompanied by Mike Flanagan. Finally, a dessert and espresso martini bar will complete the evening.

About our Talent

Dunphy lives between Boston and New York City but remains a proud New Englander in all ways that one can be: driving ability, sports teams, coffee brand, and chowder color.

Raúl Esparza is an American stage and screen actor, recently starring as Galileo Galilei in Galileo in the dazzling world-premiere musical at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, helmed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, American Idiot) and written by two-time Emmy winner Danny Strong (Dopesick, Empire, The Butler).

In the immediate wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Esparza conceived of, executive produced, and performed in the online concert event Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration. The concert received a special Drama League Award and is now preserved in the Library of Congress.

A prominent figure in Boston as a DJ/MC/Entertainer, DJ Chris Roxx has been doing what he loves for over 15 years: creating electrifying soundtracks for all types of events and nightlife venues. The sounds of Chris Roxx can be enjoyed by an intimate group of 50 to the 50,000+ fans at Gillette for a Patriots or Revolution game. From Boston to NYC, all the way to the Caribbean islands, he’s shared his musical talents. Roxx local DJs guest spots at some of Boston’s hottest venues, including Bootleg Special, STK, Metro, and Mariel to name a few.
