The ArtPrize event is a 19-day international art competition, open to any artist and decided by public vote, promoting critical dialogue and collaboration throughout the year.
For nearly three weeks, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan become an open playing field. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown, and it's all free and open to the pubic.
Unorthodox, highly disruptive and undeniably intriguing to the art world and public alike, Artprize is:
- Open Call for Artists and Venues : Anyone over the age of 18 can be an artist and any space within the ArtPrize district can be a venue. Anyone can participate.
- Independently Organized : The entire ArtPrize exhibition is independently organized by venues and artists who connect through artprize.org.
- Public Vote and Juried Awards: Spectators vote to decide who takes home the top prize, while experts award additional prizes by jury. Every voice counts.
