Art D’Core Gala Celebrates Booming Arts and Culture Community in Arizona
Artlink Holds 9th Annual Gala During Month-Long Art Detour in March 2022

Artlink, a Valley nonprofit, is hosting its 9th annual Art d’Core Gala on March 11, 2022 at Park Central (3121 N. 3rd Ave) in Phoenix to raise funds for programs that support Arizona’s arts and culture community. Art d’Core is the signature event in the lineup for the 34th annual Art Detour, Phoenix’s original art walk event. Art Detour, which spans an entire month, is an all-inclusive celebration of art, creativity and culture that features events and exhibitions throughout the state.

The gala returns with a new theme, Forces of Attraction, that invites those who contribute to and support the arts – including artists, collectors, philanthropists and community partners – to come together in celebration of the massive growth of Arizona’s art community in recent years.

This creative spin on a traditional gala shines the spotlight on Arizona’s creative communities with an artist showcase produced by members of the Artlink Artist Council and invited artists. Gala guests will experience a wide range of works in a debut exhibition of visual, performing, fashion and culinary arts.

“We look forward to welcoming back the community to this signature celebration of the arts and culture community that spotlights the great accomplishments and contributions of our creative culture,” said Catrina Kahler, president and CEO of Artlink. “Artists, patrons and party goers are in for elevated arts experience not to be missed.”

Artlink is announcing Sharon Harper, chairman and CEO of Plaza Companies, as chairperson of this year’s event. As one of Arizona’s premier business leaders, Harper has infused the arts into Park Central, SkySong and many other Plaza Companies developments, as a model to others that arts and culture are integral to the vibrancy of a community.

“I am honored to serve as Chair of the 2022 Art d’Core Gala,” said Harper. “I have seen first-hand the power of art in Phoenix, and I am thrilled to be collaborating with Artlink, showcasing the rapidly growing arts and culture community in our state.”

Tickets will be available to purchase in January, with creative cocktail attire encouraged. To sign up for updates and for more information about Artlink, please visit, or connect via social media on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. For more information on Art Detour, please visit
