GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — ArtPrize is right around the corner! Businesses, restaurants, churches, bars and more have been registering to be part of the annual art competition since mid-April. Now, registration for artists is open!
Each year, ArtPrize brings hundreds of pieces of art to Grand Rapids, from large installations to smaller pieces of art displayed inside local businesses.
Over $400,000 is awarded to artists both through public and juried voting. The grand prize winner will take home $125,000, while second place will take home $50,000 and third place will win $25,000.
Another $200,000 is given to artists annually as grants.
Any artist is welcome to participate. Categories include 2D, digital, installation, 3D and time-based.
"My goal and vision this year is to focus on excellence in tight spaces, and really produce an excellent event and creative foundation for future years of ArtPrize as it takes its next steps into future iterations," said ArtPrize Executive Director Catlin Whitington.
