City Arts is excited to announce the return of the Best Of Art Walk Awards in 2011! Building on the successes of 2010, there will be four awards given out in 2011 which will include a $1000 prize along with a follow-up feature on the winning artist in City Arts Magazine. City Arts will host a party celebrating the finalists where attendees will vote on the winner. The cash prize is provided by City Arts, 4Culture and Blue Moon beer.

In partnership with Seattle’s Art Walk Consortium, City Arts aims to engage all the businesses and galleries that participate in the multiple neighborhood walks throughout the city each month.

A call for entries will be extended on a quarterly basis requesting that participating businesses and galleries submit their choices for the best piece they’ve displayed in the preceding three months. From these submissions, City Arts will select six pieces as finalists. These pieces and information about the artists and businesses they showed at will be spotlighted on CityArtsOnline.com

All the organizations collaborating to produce the 2011 Best of Art Walk Awards share the mutual goal of supporting and highlighting the diverse array of art walks throughout the city and the artists, businesses, and communities that make them possible.

Every gallery or business owner is strongly encouraged to participate in the Best of Art Walk Awards nomination process. Our individual efforts will help us collectively raise awareness for the array of options arts fans have throughout the city. All pieces showcased by City Arts will also promote the gallery or business at which it was displayed.

Submitting is incredibly simple, if you are an art venue in Phinneywood, please contact: artup@greenwood-phinney.com to get the step by step instructions on submitting your best of photos for your venue each month.
