Congratulations to our 2019 Arty Award finalists! We are so excited to celebrate the arts in Topeka and shine a light on the best and brightest of Topeka arts. During the event, we will honor the best and the brightest of our creative community with a Grammys-style event for nearly 300 guests including champagne, sweets, dancing and much more. It’s the coolest party of the year, and we want you to be a part of it.

We have big news this year: We have heard you tell us that you want to join in the celebration - but that the ticket prices have been too expensive for many people in our creative community. Therefore, we are releasing a limited number of "early bird" tickets at an extremely discounted rate...and even after the early bird rates expire on Sept 19, tickets will only cost $45 a piece. Please bring a friend and come enjoy one of the best events of the year celebrating the arts in Topeka!
