We are so excited to start 2018 - a year when lots of big dreams will become reality. Won't you consider a donation to support the arts in Topeka? If you love First Friday, bright murals and want to see more art all across Topeka, we hope that you will choose to support ARTSConnect!



During the ARTSConnect First Friday Artwalk, we find our city filled with art, friends and exciting special events. Every month is different - and every business is different, so please check our Gallery Features page for information each month and then join thousands of people in this fantastic monthly event! 


This partnership with the Topeka Police Department, Safe Streets Coalition, Downtown Topeka, Inc., Shawnee County Parks + Rec and the City of Topeka makes Topeka a safer more vibrant, prosperous place to live through the installation of large works of public art.  Part of the Topeka Mural Project in 2018 will be a mural painted adjacent to the Brown v Board of Education National Historic Site and you can learn more about this project here!


Funded by the City of Topeka and administered by ARTSConnect, the 2016 & 2017 TopArts Grants Program were each an incredible success - and now we are ready to accept applications for the 2018 program. Grants are available in two categories – public arts & arts access and applications are due no later than February 5th, 2018 at 5p.
