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, a costume contest and new this year… the Variety Show at the Egyptian Theater featuring dance, theatrical and music performances. 

We are looking for your talent and performances to feature on the stage of DeKalb’s historic Egyptian Theatre! The Variety Show will award a top prize of $500.00 to the best performance of the evening along with other prizes for runner-ups.

See the application tab on this page to enter to show off your mad skills and get the chance to win that cash.

This is ARTigras, so…. there will be a costume contest of course. Where there is a ARTigras costume contest, there are prizes from the Village Commons Bookstore. No need to apply, just show up to the Variety Show dressed to impress and may the best costume win.

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!

Application Deadline has been extended until April 28th!
