You won't want to miss the two-part Critical Discourse series, "Why These Finalists?" On October 2 and 3, a panel of three art experts will discuss half of the public and juried finalists in a lively, humorous, and irreverent debate—further exploring the tension between public and expert approaches to assessing art, and seek to answer the burning questions often asked on each side of the debate. Both nights will be broadcast live on WOOD TV8.

Admission is free and open to the public, in the ArtPrize Studio (41 Sheldon Blvd SE). Priority seating for ArtFans and ArtClub Members.

NOTE: Doors close at 6:45 p.m. The show begins at 7 p.m.
