Fountain Street Church is a beautiful, historic, downtown landmark. The Fountain Street Church Art Committee manages seven exhibitions each year, one of which is dedicated to ArtPrize. The Church has been an ArtPrize venue since the first event in 2009. In 2014, 29,000 visitors to the Church viewed works by 31 artists and Fountain Street was a finalist for the juror’s best venue award. In addition to works by ArtPrize artists, the stunning art and architecture of the Church sanctuary attracts many visitors. Independent jurors engaged by the Social Action Committee and the American Civil Liberties Union will award two $1000 prizes for works that best express the theme of the exhibition.

Artist & Connection Information
Fountain Street collaborates with The American Civil Liberties Union on an exhibition with the theme "Art to Change the World: Inspiring Social Justice.” Art plays an important role as an agent for social and economic justice and peace in the world. We select works that focus attention on basic human needs, respecting diversity, and fostering freedom of expression. Works will be judged on how well they communicate these issues and on the quality of artistic expression. “Art to Change the World“ challenges artists to be both creative and compelling. Fountain Street Church offers spaces for two- and three-dimensional works, installations, and performance. Outdoor spaces are available.
