Celebrating the one-of-a-kind arts and culture that make the Wichita community so memorable.
The 51st Annual Arts Council Awards were held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 4 at Wichita Art Museum, 1400 W Museum Blvd. In 2020, out of an abundance of caution, the Arts Council’s Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel our 51st annual Art Awards dinner. In 2021, we were very pleased to announce that the event would go on!
In 2021, twelve outstanding Wichita area individuals, cultural organizations and businesses were recognized for their roles in furthering the growth and development of arts in the Wichita area during the Art Awards presentation.
The annual Arts Council Awards were established in 1969 by the Wichita/Sedgwick County Arts and Humanities Council in order to recognize and honor those businesses, foundations and individuals who have displayed consistent and exemplary support of the arts and humanities in our community.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, without whom we would not be able to honor deserving artists and art advocates and to celebrate the many ways art impacts the Wichita community, from education to entertainment, economic development, and everything in between.
