Lincoln Center to honor Arthur J. Mirante II.
"Arthur Mirante's efforts on behalf of the Council are but part of his overall contributions to Lincoln Center," said Alair Townsend, Chairman of the Leadership Committee of the Consolidated Corporate Fund for Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and Vice President and Publisher of Crain's New York Business, pointing too Mr. Mirante's additional work on the Leadership Committee. "Through Arthur's Council works, he is making it possible for the opera and the other performing arts he so loves, to thrive and garner new audiences across the country."
In February, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) presented Mirante with the National Human Relations Award for his many years of service to the community. Through this award, the AJC seeks to recognize individuals who have attained a leadership role in industry or the professions, and who have contributed to the community through civic affairs and philanthropic endeavors. Last year, Mr. Mirante received the "NY Area Quarterback Award" from The United Way of New York; the Heartshare All-Star Millennium Award, from the foster care agency, and was the honoree at the annual dinner of Kushner Hebrew Academy, a private, co-educational school.
Mirante is on the Board of the United Way of New York City, the Alvin Ailey Dance Company (last month The New York Times noted that Mr. Mirante and C&W were instrumental in finding a new home for the company), the Nassau Country Fine Arts Museum and the Boy Scouts of America. He has been involved with many of these organizations for more than a decade. Recognized regularly for his significant efforts on behalf of charitable organizations, Mr. Mirante has been honored by New York organizations such as Just One Break, Futures in Education Foundation, New York Boys Choir, The Israel Cancer Research Fund and the Realty Foundation of New York.
