Next Season: April 26 - May 5, 2019

Participate in Special Programs

Besides being an ArtWeek Event Host or Community Partner, there are other ways to be involved with ArtWeek! Please read about our two special programs below. Applications for both Art of Food and Light Up the Night programs are now open until March 22!

Art of Food

In the fall of 2015, ArtWeek began celebrating creativity each season with the Art of Food. We have tapped the creative genius behind the hospitality and restaurant sector with these partner restaurants, which feature a special ArtWeek menu item inspired by a piece of art, a favorite album, artist or an arts group – where nothing is off the table! The best part? Some of these restaurants have generously committed to making a contribution that will purchase arts supplies for local schools, libraries and community centers.

Light Up the Night

As a special nighttime salute to our arts, cultural, and creative communities, iconic buildings and structures light up during ArtWeek on different nights in multicolored splendor. “Light Up the Night” is a colorful skyline celebration representing the wide spectrum of diverse artists and creative organizations – whether a traditional arts nonprofit, individual artist, scientist, chef, or other creative professional or business – who are the innovators and champions of creativity within all of our communities.
