Top Five Phoenix Arts and Culture Stories of the Week: 2013 Academy Awards Edition
Nothing beats creativity -- especially if it makes a difference in our community.
Since 2010, we've been on the hunt for emerging creatives in the Valley who are working on cool projects. Call them designers, performers, chefs, singers, dancers, painters, sculptors ... We're sticking to Big Brains.
This year, we're introducing a new category and highlighting the talents of some seriously crafty people in this city. Starting now, we are accepting online nominations for Valley residents who deserve to win $500 in one of the following categories: visual art, performing art, design, culinary art, online, and craft.
