The Obelisk Awards were established in 1989 to recognize exemplary partnerships between business and the arts in North Texas. For more than a quarter century, The Obelisk Awards have become the symbol of excellence awarded to business and business leaders for their continued impact on our community through their support of the arts. All of the businesses and individuals nominated for The Obelisk Awards are visionaries who represent industries including finance, legal, architecture, transportation, entertainment, real estate and many more. The nonprofit arts and cultural organizations which nominated these businesses span North Texas and include all disciplines of the arts such as classical music, dance, film, opera, theater, literature, visual arts and youth education.
