Are you excited? We’re excited. 

The ArtPrize competition will return September 16-October 4, 2020. In just nine short months, we'll once again welcome hundreds of artists and hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world to Grand Rapids. It'll be here before we know it!

While we held the Project 1 exhibition in 2019, we didn’t forget about ArtPrize. Far from it. We spent the year between biennial competitions gathering input from event stakeholders and developing new programs and features that we’ve been dreaming about for a long time.

We’re deep into planning mode for ArtPrize 2020, and if you’re planning to participate — whether you hope to open your space as a venue, submit artwork as an artist, bring your students on a field trip, volunteer with our team, or any of the myriad ways you can get involved — we thought the dates below would be useful to know.
