The night where art’s ability to attract, influence and inspire is in full force

On Friday, March 11, Artlink presents the 9th annual Art d’Core Gala, a signature celebration of Arizona’s arts and culture, at Park Central in midtown Phoenix.

This fresh and exhilarating spin on a traditional fundraising gala is the opening night of the Art d’Core Exhibition produced by the Artlink Artist Council featuring a thrilling multimedia art showcase that has been named the “Best Arts Collaboration of the Year.”

Immerse yourself in VISUAL, PERFORMING, FASHION, CULINARY AND MUSICAL works in a never-before-seen 80,000 square foot venue designed to celebrate the thriving arts and culture community’s contribution of creativity, beauty, ingenuity and vitality.

6 PM | Reveling cocktail reception featuring Arizona Wine, artisan cocktails and hors d’oeuvres presented by favorite culinary artists

7 PM | Toast to the arts

8 PM | Special performance TBA

9 – 12 PM | Pavilion Club After Party


This is a progressive, elevated, semi-industrial, arts experience, where colorful cocktail meets hip & chic. Come as your creative self – and elevate the experience of others – by wearing what inspires your artist within.

Pro Tip: Wear shoes for the step and repeat (and repeat…!) in an expansive, 80K square-foot venue. Be prepared to walk on concrete floors, take elevators and stairways to access the exhibition and restrooms (…go before you go!), and dance at the after party. Seating will be limited.


As the very first Gala theme, “Forces of Attraction” is meant to complement the core mission of Artlink Inc., which is to draw together those larger forces that make art possible from across the state, including the contributions of artists, donors, businesses, collectors and advocates.

We thank event chair Sharon Harper and our donors and partners for their generous support of Artlink programs, including the development of a future home where the arts and their makers will advance the cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality of our community.
