The St. Louis Arts Awards honors the artists, educators, philanthropists, corporate citizens and arts organizations that make our region so vibrant. It is an elegant evening of cocktails and dinner, an awards presentation and awe-inspiring performances - all packed into just four hours.

Proceeds benefit the Arts and Education Council, which offers programs and services that benefit more than 70 arts and arts education organizations impacting 1.6 million people throughout the 16-county, bi-state region.


A tribute gift to the Arts and Education Council is a great way to honor and celebrate honorees. When a tribute gift is received, we will send an acknowledgment to the honoree(s) indicated, notifying them of your thoughtful donation, but will not reveal the amount of the donation. Every gift is tax-deductible, and you will receive an acknowledgment of your donation.
