ArtFans represent the spirit of ArtPrize, where artists are celebrated, spectators are challenged, and curiosity is rewarded.

The ArtFan program was designed with the most passionate ArtPrize fans in mind. It has quickly grown into a group of forward-thinking philanthropists, art enthusiasts, and community leaders who value art and take action to ensure it continues to have a presence in the community. In other words, people like you.

As an ArtFan, you become a personal stakeholder and ambassador for ArtPrize, joining our most loyal supporters in helping ArtPrize to pursue its bold vision for Grand Rapids. ArtFans enjoy exclusive benefits with behind-the-scenes access and invitations to special events and programming—all designed to bring you closer to the creative participants and producers of ArtPrize.

"I joined the ArtFan program in its inaugural year and have enjoyed it immensely. The special events, forums, and inside view of the ArtPrize organization have been unique and inspiring experiences. I always look foward to the next year!" —Wendy Gerber
