About the Art Walk Awards: In 2011, four winners will each receive $1,000 and a profile of their artwork in City Arts magazine. Together with our 2011 partners, the Art Walk Consortium, businesses and galleries that participate in neighborhood art walks can nominate a favorite piece of art for each month. Each spring, summer, winter and fall, we narrow dozens of submissions down to six finalists, and then throw a party in their honor (with delicious and free Blue Moon seasonal beers, music, food and more). Anyone attending the event gets to vote for the winner and we'll hand out the award that night.

Are you a local Gallery owner or business that wants to participate in the next Art Walk Awards?

The Art Walk Awards aims to help promote vital art communities throughout Seattle. All artworks showcased by City Arts will also promote the gallery or business where the artwork was originally displayed. For Phinneywood, please email artup@greenwood-phinney.com for more information.
