Due to the persistent changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19 in our community and out of an abundance of caution, we have rescheduled the 2022 St. Louis Arts Awards, scheduled for Monday January 24 at the Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta Hotel to Monday, May 23, 2022. We feel that gathering together in a few weeks may not be comfortable or safe for our guests. The health and well-being of our community is our top priority and we’re looking forward to celebrating our incredible honorees in-person this May. If you have already purchased tickets or tables for the event, they will be honored at the May date. 

Find the most up to date safety information below. Due to the evolving nature of best practices, our policies will be reviewed regularly to follow the latest public health recommendations.
