The Grand Rapids ArtPrize is a one-of-a-kind event and, in the words of  its organizers, a “radically open competition”  featuring over 1,700 pieces of art on display at more than 175 venues. Its artist-participants match online with locations throughout the city that are willing to host work including sculpture, film, installation, performance and 2-D media.  Then, from its opening on September 22 to its closing on October 10, visitors vote on their favorite artists.  With a $250,000 top prize, it is the world’s largest art prize decided solely by public vote.  See the official website for more information.

Thanks and hope to see you there! (The sculpture above is a finalist from last year).
