The Big Gay Art Show is a juried art show that exhibits and sells artwork in support of the LGBTQ+ community and allies. The Big Gay Art Show is a much anticipated, well attended exhibition open to all artists in any medium and of any level. 

In 2012, the Big Gay Art Show was conceptualized by a small group – some connected to SAC and others in the Sedona Pride organization. The event began as an effort to offer the LGBTQ+ community a voice in the local art scene. Since that first show, SAC has welcomed hundreds of emerging and professional artists to Sedona to share their work throughout the history of the event.  All art mediums will be accepted.

●       Monetary awards will be given for First Place/Best of Show Award ($500), Second ($250) and Third ($150) place.

●       Honorable mention awards will be awarded at the discretion of the jurors and no monetary amount attached.

●       People’s Choice Award is announced at the end of the show. No monetary award attached.
