Your Source For The Arts In Atlanta

On January 27, 2019, ArtsATL will recognize the best of the best in Atlanta arts during the third-annual Luminary Awards ceremony, which will be held 6–8 p.m. at City Winery. Before the winners are revealed this winter, we want to recognize all the people and organizations who were lifted up during the nomination process.

The Luminary Awards are Atlanta’s premier arts honors, celebrating the social impact, diversity, innovation, leadership and generosity of the city’s creative community.

The awards are given out in five categories: Arts Education, Community Engagement, Philanthropic Legacy, Outstanding Leadership and Arts Innovation. A selection committee is reviewing the nominees to select the winner from each category.

Today, we announce all those who were nominated for the 2019 Luminary Award for Arts Innovation.
