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 cocktails, champagne, sweets, dancing and much more. It’s the coolest party of the year, and we want you to be a part of it.
