In light of the current crisis surrounding COVID-19, the health and safety of our patrons, employees, and community are—as always—our highest priority. We have been closely monitoring updates and information issued by our local, state, and federal governing bodies, and as a result, have decided to reschedule ASI’s 7th Annual Spark Awards, originally planned for Wednesday, May 13.

UPDATE: The 7th Annual Spark Awards will now be held on Monday, November 16, 2020 and will be streamed virtually through our YouTube page starting at 7:00 PM. Previously purchased tickets will be refunded upon request. This presentation will be free and open to anyone who wants to join us to celebrate and support the incredible work and dedication of this year’s honorees.

We want our community to know how grateful we are for your ongoing support of ASI and of Western New York’s creative industry. More than ever, ASI is here to advance, celebrate, and support our region’s arts and cultural community, who are among the most economically vulnerable during this challenging time. We hope you all are staying safe and healthy, and we look forward with great excitement to celebrating the incredible achievements and contributions of our 2020 honorees and the remarkable generosity of our sponsors and supporters in November.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Holly at [email protected] or (716) 833-3004 x512.
