ArtFan Programs: Social Good and Artist Development

Your donation will be honored and recognized through the program and level you have chosen to support, or you can work with ArtPrize to recognize the gift in your own way.

Cultural Equity

We believe that art is for everyone. We want ArtPrize to be as racially and ethnically diverse as the community it serves. We also work to address disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic differences and access to education. Help us make sure everyone belongs at ArtPrize.

Environmental Sustainability

ArtPrize educates our community around waste diversion, energy use, alternative transportation, water conservation, local food systems, healthy living and our overall ecological footprint. In 2016, ArtPrize was able to divert nearly 25% of the waste generated during the event, sparing nearly seven tons of material from incineration and landfilling. Help us with these programs.

Health & Wellness

Creating opportunities to promote health and wellness is something we care a lot about at ArtPrize. We want you to learn about the programs and community partnerships that aim to positively impact mind, body and environment.

Arts Education

Through numerous partnerships with area schools as well as arts and cultural organizations, ArtPrize provides a range of transportation grants, free arts education programs and resources each year to nearly 19,000 students from over 200 schools. Everyone should have a voice in the conversation about what art is and why it matters. Help us inspire new generations of artists and art-lovers.

Artist Development and Grants

ArtPrize supports emerging artists with development and educational opportunities and by giving a critical boost to ambitious ArtPrize artists through a range of need and merit based grants.
