Nashville Arts Coalition established the Steine Leadership in the Arts Award in 2015 to honor Ronnie Steine for his decades of service to the arts in Nashville, as a private citizen and as a member of the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County.
Given each year by Nashville Arts Coalition, the award acknowledges the commitment of a citizen or elected official to supporting arts funding as a major economic driver of Nashville's vitality.
The award is a handmade sculpture by artist Brenda Stein (no relation to Mr. Steine).
