ARTI Award Nominations Now Accepted

Arts Council of Indianapolis presents ARTI Awards - Nominations Now Accepted

Deadline: Friday, August 20

 The ARTI Awards, presented annually at the Arts Council's Start with Art event, are a celebration and commemoration of outstanding support of the arts in our community and a perfect way to publicly recognize this outstanding support.  At, you will find a nomination form for your use.

Additionally, the Artful Impact ARTI Award will be presented to a company, individual, event, or activity in the past 12 months that had a significant and long-lasting impact on the arts in Indianapolis.  Where the other three categories are designed to recognize life-long support of the arts, the Artful Impact award recognizes and honors something truly remarkable in the arts in the past year. 

Through their generous donation of time, talent, and financial resources, ARTI Award winners increase awareness of the arts for the benefit of our city. Last year's recipients included:

Corporate: Duke Energy (nominated by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra )
Small Business: Varnau Creative Group (nominated by Clowes Memorial Hall)
Volunteer/Patron: Eugene & Marilyn Glick (nominated by the Central Indiana Community Foundation and the Indiana Historical Society)
Artful Impact ARTI: Indianapolis Airport Authority's public art program at the Indianapolis International Airport

This year's Start with Art luncheon is set for Friday, September 3rd at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.  Details about this kick-off celebration for the new arts season are forthcoming.  You can purchase tickets and buy tables online beginning next week at
