Big Brain Awards

Meet New Times' 2013 Big Brain Finalists and Celebrate the Winners at Artopia on April 27

We're throwing a party.

Our annual Big Brain Awards celebrate emerging creatives in a variety of media throughout the Valley (and give them cash prizes to put toward their passions).

And while you'll have to wait until this afternoon to find out who the finalists are, you're more than welcome to start gearing up for Artopia, an event full of music, food, and art, where we'll announce the 2013 Big Brain winners.
