We'll profile the 15 Big Brain finalists and their creative endeavors on Jackalope Ranch and Chow Bella during 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.
Tickets are $25 in advance and available online via www.ticketfly.com. Prices go up to $35 the day of the party.
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
