The City of Winston-Salem has a long, impressive history of being the home to people who have made a significant contributions to the arts and entertainment industry. In an effort to recognize our beloved artists, the City is creating an “Arts, Cultural, and Entertainment Memorial Walk of Fame” at the soon-to-be renovated Benton Convention Center.
Nominations that are accepted as honorees will be memorialized with bronze stars embedded in the sidewalk at the entrance of the Benton Convention Center, or on the east sidewalk parallel to Cherry St.
Nominations are now being accepted for 2017! See printable form [pdf/2mb/2p]. The Memorial Walk of Fame Nominating Committee will accept nominations through February 28. Five nominees will be presented to City Council for a final vote. Due to the construction on the Benton Convention Center, the 2016 honorees will be recognized in 2017, along with the 2017 honorees.
