Membership FAQs

How do I get my membership badge and swag bag?

You may pick up your ArtClub Swag Bag and badge(s) beginning September 21 at our ArtPrize Clubhouse. Located at 50 Louis NW, 7th Floor in Grand Rapids, the Clubhouse is open every day during ArtPrize, 11–7 p.m.  

Can family or friends use my membership badge?

Your membership benefits are for you, and membership cards and badges are not transferable. Only the member(s) named on the card is entitled to the benefits of their ArtClub or ArtFan membership. However, if you have a Member+ or Household membership, you can leave your second cardholder as a “Guest”. In this case, you are welcome to share that card/badge with a rotation of individuals.

What should I do if I lose my membership badge?

If it is off-season, please email us at artclub@artprize.org and we will send you new credentials within a week. During ArtPrize Eight, please drop by the ArtPrize Clubhouse (location to be announced soon) and visit the badging booth.

How can I check my membership status or change my profile information?

Sign in to your ArtPrize account. Your membership information is listed under “ArtClub” in the left-hand sidebar. You can see your order history, update your member profile, address, credit card information, or cancel your membership from this page at any time. If you would like to change your level of membership or add a love level, please email us at artclub@artprize.org.

How do I determine the tax-deductible value of my membership?

Please view your membership receipt for all information related to tax deductibility. If you no longer have your record, please email us and we can look up the specifics of your account and re-send you a receipt.
