ARTE DAVIES MEMORIAL FUND

Arte Davies loved the Vail Dance Festival and was an integral part of its growth and success over the years. His personal and amiable style of caring for the artists, staff, patrons and crew will be fondly remembered forever.

From 1994 through 2015, Arte was a permanent fixture at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, always present for countless magical summer performances and events.

Arte had a special affinity for the Festival interns and each group, in turn, adored him and valued the knowledge gained from working with him. Each summer, Festival interns are trained in Arte’s philosophy and hospitality practices. At the conclusion of each Festival, one intern is nominated by their peers to receive the Spirit of Arte Davies Award. To keep Arte’s spirit alive, donations collected through the Arte Davies Memorial Fund support the Vail Dance Festival Internship Program.
