Audience Architects looks forward to honoring Sarah Solotaroff Mirkin with its inaugural Distinguished Service to the Dance Field Award.

Under Sarah’s visionary direction at The Chicago Community Trust (CCT) as Senior Program Officer for Arts and Culture and later as Vice-President for Programs, the Trust’s leadership, particularly its Executive Committee, supported transformative investments to the Chicago dance field. Those investments funded vital research and the launch of numerous projects. One CCT project directly led to the creation of in 2005 and ultimately its parent 501c3 organization, Audience Architects. Co-founded by Carol Fox and Niki Morrison in 2008, Audience Architects is thrilled to honor Sarah’s tremendous dance legacy. Your participation in the Gala will help celebrate Sarah, and the website that currently serves so many artists and ticket buyers, fostering a healthier and stronger dance community.
