It's Good to Be Curious

Every year, artists from all over the world fill hundreds of venues all around the city with their artwork. Grand Rapids, Michigan, hums with the creative energy of a community fully engaged in the enjoyment of art.

Here’s how to tap into the excitement:

  1. Sign Up: Voting is an essential part of the ArtPrize experience, and the first step is easy: create an account. Your account will help you build and share lists of artist entries you plan to see. 
  2. Register to vote: To vote, you first must register while you are physically present at ArtPrize. When you register at a voting site, or with the ArtPrize mobile app while you are within the ArtPrize event boundaries, we confirm who you are, and that you are physically attending the event at least once. We verify your presence at the event with SMS verification and geo-location on the mobile app, or by presenting any government ID at a voting site.
  3. Vote!: Explore the city and cast your vote for the Entries you think are most deserving of the $200,000 Public Vote Grand Prize. Once you've registered to vote while you visited ArtPrize, you can then vote from home or wherever your travels take you.  

If this sounds like fun, you’re right—it is. We can’t wait to see you there!
