This year local artist Chris Thomas created the awards. Thomas said the following on regards to her work-

“What an honor to be commissioned to create the 2015 Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanity Council Hero Awards. The basic premise of tonight’s show, the first of the 2015/16 Perot Theatre, deals with light and darkness. How apropos that we celebrate you, our community’s Arts heroes, with an ode to shining light in the darkness. With that theme in mind, this ceramic lantern was created inspired by Japanese stone ones. Either a votive or battery operated candle can be used, of course, always be aware that ceramic will transmit heat. It may be used inside or outside, with the suggestion that it be brought in during freezing weather.
Let me join my congratulations and thanks along with all of Texarkana’s for your ongoing and outstanding support for the Arts in our region.

Pax et bonum, peace and goodness, Chris Thomas”
