Mark Your Calendars for Sept 16-Oct 3, 2021

Season’s greetings from ArtPrize.

We can’t thank you enough for your patience, support and understanding as we all navigated through an unexpected and challenging year. We missed hosting visitors and celebrating thousands of artists, venues and creatives that breathe life into this vibrant event and competition.

With optimistic views for a return to a considerable degree of normalcy by the fall of 2021, we’re thrilled to share some big news: ARTPRIZE IS BACK. We wanted you to be the first to know. The competition will return to Grand Rapids from September 16-October 3, 2021.

We look forward with anticipation into the New Year and the opportunity to work with our community to create the best ArtPrize yet—one that will inspire hope and excitement in Grand Rapids and beyond, bringing us together in new ways, celebrating artists and art lovers, and fostering a sense of openness and healing.

Artist and venue registration dates are coming soon. In the coming weeks, we’ll also share details on $450,000 in grants and prizes—and how more artists than ever before will have the opportunity to win. Stay tuned to your email, artprize.org and ArtPrize social channels for details.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all you’ve done to support ArtPrize since its inception in 2009. We can’t wait to see you next fall!
