Art Walk Awards

2018 Art Walk Awards

The spring Art Walk Awards are headed for First Thursday in Pioneer Square!

The next installment of our longest running event will return to the neighborhood where it began way back in 2010, supplying the after-party for the First Thursday festivities on April 5, featuring guest DJ SassyBlack.

The awards will take place at AXIS—a bigger space that means more artwork, more artists and more fun. We’ve added a guest judge (there are now four) and increased the total number of artworks on view from nine to 12.

Stay tuned for more information about our guest judges and the finalists they’ve picked in the weeks ahead. Then come out and join us to drink, dance and vote for your favorite piece! The top three artists win cash prizes and the first-place artwork will be featured in the May issue of City Arts magazine.
