Presented by NIU and the City of DeKalb, ARTigras is a Celebration of the Arts—both in the DeKalb community as well as on the NIU campus.  This year’s ARTigras, Spring Art Walk features student art exhibitions, student/local art in downtown venues, and new this year… The Art of Tasting and the Variety Show at the Egyptian Theater featuring dance, theatrical and music performances.

The perfect pairing of an art walk and progressive tasting come together in ‘The Art of Tasting’! Enjoy an evening of strolling through Downtown DeKalb while enjoying art and tasting new foods and libations. The event will culminate at the Egyptian Theatre with the ARTigras Variety Show. Tickets are on sale now.

We are looking for your talent and performances to feature on the stage of DeKalb’s historic Egyptian Theatre! The Variety Show will award cash prizes to the best performance of the evening along with other prizes for runner-ups.

DeKalb Area residents, NIU students and employees, and all arts enthusiasts are encouraged to participate! Admission to all art venues and the Egyptian Theatre is free to all!
