Date:6/26/2012

Portland, ME (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

The Maine Center for Creativity is proud to announce its inaugural Maine Creative Industry Award, dedicated to recognizing excellence in art, innovation and enterprise. Accepting this prestigious award are Glenn Close and David Shaw at an awards gala in their honor on September 13, 2012 in Portland, Maine.

As one the first of its kind in the country, the Maine Creative Industry Award celebrates those exemplary people who have demonstrated the power of art and business working together to make a positive impact on the state and in the world.

“Glenn and David embody the marriage of arts and industry—literally and figuratively, says Katherine Greenleaf, President of the Board of Directors for the Maine Center for Creativity. “They were selected for their extraordinary blend of talent, creativity and business acumen and we are honored they are accepting this award.”

Working together and individually, Close and Shaw foster the continuing growth and success of Maine-based enterprises and cultural endeavors, as well as bring the national spotlight to the state’s world-class business, intellectual, cultural, technological and natural assets.

“We are honored to help raise the visibility of the creative industries in Maine and invite other talent to join us here to launch their ideas.” says David Shaw, best known in Maine as founder of IDEXX Laboratories (IDEXX) and former Chair of The Jackson Laboratory. “Creativity is a powerful connection for Maine to the rest of the world. We are succeeding because of our ability to innovate and act; to make a positive impact.”

Close is an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Tony Award-winning actress; and a recent recipient of the 2012 Matrix Award for excellence by New York Women in Communication. Most recently, Close co-wrote, produced and starred in the feature film Albert Nobbs, in which she was nominated for her sixth Academy Award
