Arts Awards recognize the accomplishments of artists, arts and cultural organizations and local individuals committed to enriching our community through the arts. The four awards categories reflect the values of Spokane Arts: Leadership, Collaboration, Imagination and Inclusion. In any of these categories, you may nominate an artist, volunteer, neighborhood, educator, organization, community leader, donor, business or any other entity which you feel deserves recognition. Emerging or established, young or old, on the edge or in the center – we welcome any nomination that celebrates the wealth of participation in Spokane’s arts ecosystem. More details at
