THE ARTIE AWARDS 2017

ARTIE AWARDS 2017

ARTVOICE thanks WNED/WBFO for presenting The Arties 2017. For 26 years The Arties were the pride and joy of ARTVOICE, but due to recent ownership changes, loss of staff and recources it became untenable for Artvoice to continue the event. We dearly thank Don Boswell and his staff for securing the future of an important part of our culture and our theater community by taking responsibility for this wonderful event.
