How to be an ArtPrize Venue
Register Your Venue
If you have a space within the ArtPrize district, you’re qualified to be an ArtPrize venue. Just sign up for an ArtPrize Account and pay the registretion fee during Venue Registration.
Connect with Artists
Decide which artwork you’d like to display in your space, browsing and reaching out to registered artists at artprize.org during the Connections period. Connect with at least one artist to become an official ArtPrize venue.
Host Your Exhibition
Prepare your exhibit over the summer — then host artists and celebrate our community this fall.
Venues Are Essential to ArtPrize
Nearly 200 venues throughout Grand Rapids — outdoors and in, big and small, public and private — host artists and visitors during ArtPrize. Museums, parks, universities, retail shops, office spaces, restaurants, cafes, nonprofits, churches, residences and truly any other building or space can join in the energy and excitement of ArtPrize.
Each individual venue that signs up works directly with artists, organizing its own show. Collectively, these nearly 200 independently-organized art shows make up the ArtPrize competition. Simply put, ArtPrize wouldn’t be ArtPrize without these venues.
