The Big Brains are coming.
We'll profile the 15 finalists and their creative endeavors on Jackalope Ranch and Chow Bella in the next few weeks. From that group of up-and-comers, five winners will be announced (and awarded with $500) at Bentley Projects on Friday, April 25, during New Times' Artopia, an evening celebrating art, food, fashion, drinks and music.
And presale tickets to the party are available now.
The current presale will run through Sunday, March 30. Tickets go on sale to the public Monday, March 31.
Jackalope Ranch readers can access the early sale with the promo code: JACKALOPE. Subscribers to New Times arts newsletter received a special code via e-mail.
Artopia will take place from 8 p.m. to midnight on April 25. Details on entertainment and vendors are coming soon.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
