Meet New Times' Big Brain Finalists and Celebrate the Winners at Artopia on April 7

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 we're still taking nominations for this year's winners -- you have until March 5 to submit -- and gearing up to profile the finalists in April, we're also brainstorming/daydreaming for Artopia, an event full of music, food, and art, where we'll announce the 2012 Big Brain winners

Mark your calendars and nominate a few creatives (sure, even yourself), because on April 7, from 7 to 11 p.m., we'll be honoring five winners in the categories of design, fashion, visual art, culinary, and performing art at The Saguaro in Scottsdale.

Tickets will be available soon (for $10), as will the drool-worthy lineup of finalists and participating artists and vendors. 

Stay tuned to the Big Brain page for more details.
