Our Community, in Partnership

A project of Tucson Pima Arts Council, in partnership with business, government, and the arts community
The Lumies Arts & Business Awards celebrate those individuals, organizations and businesses that make Southern Arizona a wellspring of creative vitality. TPAC invites the public to nominate arts ‘luminaries’ who have made a profound impact on their own lives and communities.
The eleven awards categories this year are: Artist Lifetime Achievement, Established Artist, Emerging Artist, Established Arts Organization, Emerging Arts Organization, Arts Educator, Arts Education Program, Arts Administrator, Arts Patron, Large Business Partner, Small Business Partner.
An independent panel of judges will recommend the winner of each category to the Tucson Pima Arts Council. Nominations will be announced in April. Nominees will be honored and winners announced at an evening gala, to be held
