Art Is For Everyone

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world converge in Grand Rapids, MI to experience, explore, and actively participate in an art competition and community event unlike any other.

Startlingly simple and open by design, ArtPrize® provides a platform for anyone over the age of 18 to be an artist, any space within the ArtPrize district to be a venue, and anyone who loves art to get involved as a voter, volunteer, or patron of the arts.
