Indy Week

Since 1990, the Indy Week has annually honored outstanding local artists and arts groups with Indies Awards.

To be creative is to constantly engage one's surroundings. Thus, the Indies honor both aesthetic contribution and community collaboration. That balance is crucial, we believe, not only for the benefit of our communities but for the sustenance of the artists themselves. We salute those who work to demystify the artistic process, reaching for new audiences while maintaining artistic integrity. We especially want to highlight those who have received less public recognition than they deserve.
