Becoming An ArtPrize Venue

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE AS A VENUE?

Venue registration for this year’s ArtPrize is open from March 14th, 2024 to April 17th, 2024. Venue registration has been extended until May 3rd, 2024.

Venue registration is now CLOSED. Should you still wish to be a participating venue, please contact support@artprize.org and we will do our best to accommodate your request.


Find more details and the link to complete your user profile below.

Registration must be completed online; there is no paper application.


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENTER?

When you register, you’ll pay a $175 registration fee.

All registration fees must be paid by credit card through our secure payment system online.

This year, ArtPrize is excited to offer registered venues the opportunity to apply for grant funding to support their curated exhibitions for the 2024 event. This grant is meant to help offset some of the costs associated with curating a venue and exhibiting multiple artists.

Find more information about venue grants on our Grants and Awards page.

    Working With Artists

    HOW MANY ARTISTS CAN I CONNECT WITH/HOST?

    We encourage you to connect with as many Artists as you can! While some Venues host only a handful, others host over twenty. It all depends on your space and capacity.

    Artist and Venue Connections will be open from June 3rd, 2024 to June 30th, 2024.


    HOW MANY ARTISTS SHOULD I REQUEST?

    We recommend starting with six or seven requests. 


    CAN I REACH OUT TO ARTISTS BEFORE CONNECTIONS?

    Yes.


    WHEN CAN MY ARTIST(S) BEGIN INSTALLING WORK?

    It depends on your Artist’s entry. All delivery, installation, and de-installation details should be discussed with your artist(s).


    I NEED TO SIGN A HOSTING AGREEMENT WITH MY ARTIST(S). WHAT IS THAT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE?

    The Hosting Agreement is a contract that must be signed between the Artist and the Venue before the Connection can be finalized. It covers installation details, insurance, shipping, and other important information. You can view the 2024 Hosting Agreement here.


    (Note: Hosting Agreement is fillable PDF, and e-sign will work through Adobe Acrobat.)

      During The Event

      DOES ARTPRIZE PROVIDE ME WITH LABELS OR SIGNAGE?

      Yes. You will receive the labels for the Entries being displayed in your Venue. They include voting information, title, medium, category, and artist name, as well as the artist’s city, state, and country. ArtPrize does not print artist statements, but we do provide digital templates if you’d like to create your own. (Artist Statement Template available summer 2024).


      DO I RECEIVE A SIGN INDICATING MY BUSINESS IS A VENUE?

      Yes. ArtPrize provides an a-frame sign for you to place outside your business to indicate you are an ArtPrize venue. Prior to the start of the event, you will receive an email explaining venue signage pickup and what to expect.


      WHERE DO I GET MY VENUE BADGE?

      When you pick up your a-frame you will also be able to pick up your Venue badge.


      CAN I USE THE ARTPRIZE LOGO?

      No. When promoting your ArtPrize venue, you are not permitted to use the ArtPrize logo. Instead, we will provide a Venue Icon that Venues can use on promotional materials. You will receive your Venue logo when we are closer to the event.
