2020 Rome Arts Hall of Fame Inductees Selected

One of the Capitol Theatre’s annual events has been hit hard by the Coronavirus. For the past fourteen years, the historic 1928 theater in downtown Rome has hosted the induction ceremony for the organization’s Arts Hall of Fame which currently totals eighty-nine members.

The Rome Arts Hall of Fame honors individuals (living or deceased) with a strong connection to the Rome community who have made outstanding contributions to the literary, performing or visual arts. According to the Capitol’s Executive Director Art Pierce, the recognition provides the community an opportunity to remember past contributors to the arts; to celebrate current outstanding artists and to inspire young people in future artistic endeavors.

Nominations for Arts Hall of Fame members are accepted from the public and area arts organizations throughout the winter months with the induction ceremony typically held in early spring.

The 2020 induction ceremony was scheduled for May 3 at the Capitol. Unfortunately, it was necessary to put plans on hold when the Coronavirus struck and New York State mandated the closure of all places of assembly including of course, the Capitol Theatre. The Rome Arts Hall of Fame committee reports six people have been selected for the class of 2020. The names will be made public when the theater building can once again be opened to the public and a date for the event is determined.
