The Denver-based Colorado Business Committee for the Arts bestowed some love on a local business at the 30th annual Business for the Arts Awards.

On Wednesday The Results Group for the Arts (TRG Arts) was presented with the 2017 Create Award, which acknowledges an outstanding for profit creative business that has made a significant impact on Colorado's creative economy.

"To TRG it's an acknowledgment statewide of the good work they're doing," said Andy Vick, executive director of Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region. "When we can celebrate a local business supporting the arts and doing work on an international level it is something to brag about. This award further legitimizes that sentiment."

For more than two decades, TRG Arts has helped grow the revenues of dance, opera and theater companies, museums, performing arts centers, orchestras, festivals and commercial entertainment organizations.

"Creativity, the arts and culture provide opportunities for people to experience different realities and viewpoints, have conversations and empathize with their fellow humans," said Jill Robinson, president and CEO of TRG Arts. She's also a member of the COPPeR board of directors. "Our work to improve the business practices of arts and cultural organizations empowers the individuals who dare to create art and leads to increased vibrancy, innovation and artistic freedom."

Every fall COPPeR nominates a local business for the Business of Arts Awards. The nonprofit is an advocate of TRG's Data Center, a cloud-based software service that allows arts organizations to build targeted direct-mail campaigns, perform demographic and buying habit research about patrons and trade mailing lists with peers.

"They seem like a fitting nominee for the award because they're having an impact across state arts groups that are part of their Data Center," Vick said. "It makes organizations more effective in terms of generating more audience and making memberships and fundraising more effective."
