The Unicorn Awards

From its inception, we’ve pushed to evolve The Annex Art Party into a living piece of art, where patrons can walk through captivating environments created by Unicorns. The Unicorn Awards bring that idea to life, as they help artists build currency online and in person. 

Creating a show within a show, The Unicorn Awards are given to reward the artists who create the most memorable experiences at our shows. Event attendees are encouraged to cast their Unicorn Awards votes at the show, on our website, and through our social media pages.

The event and voting will continue throughout November, and the winning Unicorns will be awarded at the Potluck Meetup on November 24th at 3:00PM.

Unicorn Awards Voting System
