It's hard to believe that the tenth annual ArtPrize event is coming up in 2018. It seems like just yesterday the idea for this evolving experiment was revealed to the world, and we've counted nine events since that brisk morning in April 2009. Whether you've participated as an artist, venue, volunteer, visitor, sponsor or collaborator — for one year or many — we can't thank you enough. Your participation breathes life into the event.

Now is simultaneously a time for reflection — on all of the conversations and debates, curiosity and discovery, successes and challenges, that have taken place over the last nine years — and for looking ahead at what year ten will bring. In just ten short months, we'll once again welcome artists and visitors from around the world to Grand Rapids. It'll be here before we know it, so it's time to get planning!
