Why Vote at ArtPrize?

Art needs you, and your opinion. No education or experience required.

Even if you only see one thing at ArtPrize—if you liked it, vote for it. Artwork is created for you to respond to, and at ArtPrize, your response counts. Did the artwork move you? Did it grab your attention? Did it make you feel anything? Did it spark a new conversation or foster new understanding? Would you hang it in your home? Do you just... like it?

You decide what wins your vote. No explanation necessary.
