Each year on the first Tuesday in December, the Arts Council brings together Lansing's growing arts community to kick off the holiday season at its annual Holiday Glitter & Applause. This popular event brings together area artists and arts supporters in celebration of the arts scene in the Metro Lansing area.
Held at the University Club of MSU, Holiday Glitter & Applause traditionally welcomes more than 200 guests and serves as a celebration of the arts providing an opportunity for the Arts Council to honor artists, arts supporters and leaders in the capital region with our annual Applause awards.

Rolling Out the Red Carpet
We will present seven Applause Awards throughout the night acknowledging community members whose eminent support of the arts is unmatched. Awards will be presented in the following categories: Individual Leadership; Business Leadership; Civic Leadership; Individual Artist; Arts Educator; Cultural Organization; Creative Community
As part of an exciting creative partnership, more than 15 works of art by our artist members graced the covers of City Pulse from May through August 2016. Each of those artists has donated the original pieces, and those works will be up for silent bid. The artists will be present and will receive 30% of the winning bid on their piece. So bring your extra holiday cash! Your purchase of a piece of art at the event benefits, the artists and the Arts Council.
