George Kinghorn, director and curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art, is one of three nominees for a Fusion Bangor 2012 Leadership and Vision Award recognizing a Bangor-area resident who has made a positive impact on the Bangor region. Kinghorn, who also is president of the Downtown Bangor Partnership, has long supported downtown events and the Art Walks, according to Fusion. He consistently uses the arts as a way to enhance young professionals to live and work in Bangor, and through his many roles, has made “a true impact on the quality of life in our community,” the organization said in an announcement. The winner will be announced at the Fusion Bangor annual awards celebration from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Nov. 15 at the Bangor Waterfront.
