Join Us for the 51st Annual Art Awards | November 4 at WAM

Celebrate the one-of-a-kind arts and culture that make the Wichita community so memorable.

The 51st Annual Arts Council Awards will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 4 at Wichita Art Museum, 1400 W Museum Blvd. Last year, 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. This year, we are pleased to announce that the event will go on!

Tickets are $75 per person and include cash bar reception, dinner and awards presentation. Seating will be limited to 200 attendees in order to promote safe social distancing, so please be sure to grab your tickets before they sell out! Tickets are available now at the WichitaTix Box Office inside Century II and online at

This year, twelve outstanding Wichita area individuals, cultural organizations and businesses will be 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. There is still time to join their ranks and sponsor the Art Awards— Visit to learn more about sponsorship opportunities!
