The Grand Rapids Community Foundation has awarded ArtPrize a $50,000 grant to help the urban exhibition and $560,000 competition reach wider audiences.
ArtPrize 2014’s sixth exhibition and $560,000 competition will be bigger than its fifth.
Today, ART21 is very excited to announce a partnership with ArtPrize 2014, the Grand Rapids, Michigan art competition now entering its sixth year. The partnership introduces a number of collaborative programs set to take place during the 19-day event; but first, let’s flashback to 2009.
ArtPrize is partnering with Art21 to play a major role in the sixth annual exhibition and $560,000 competition.
Art21’s Susan Sollins will lead the panel of three jurors awarding the $200,000 Grand Juried Prize at ArtPrize 2014.
Artists from 65 countries and 46 U.S. states are vying to be a part of the next $560,000 competition created by social media entrepreneur Rick DeVos. With 194 potential venues signed up already, ArtPrize 2014 has the potential to be the biggest event ever.
