An exhibition including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture & objects, text, new media, and moving image, as well as new and traditional modes of artmaking combined in unexpected ways.

Artwork may be an abstraction of recognizable imagery; satirical, ironic or social commentary on its subject; influenced by the internet age, and the network in which it exists; or may employ visual rhetoric of advertising, corporate branding and commercial software tools.

ArtPrize 9

ArtPrize is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place for 19 days each fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which include a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.

Any artist working in any medium from anywhere in the world can participate. Art is exhibited throughout downtown Grand Rapids—museums, bars, public parks, restaurants, theaters, hotels, bridges, laundromats, auto body shops, vacant storefronts and office spaces. Artists and venues register for the competition then find each other through an online connections process in late spring. No one at ArtPrize selects a single artist or artwork, directs an artist where to show work or directs a venue what to show. In 2016, 1,453 works created by artists from 40 states and 44 countries were exhibited in 170 venues.

ArtPrize is free and open to the public and now attracts over 500,000 visitors, making it the most attended public art event in the world in 2014 and 2015, according the The Art Newspaper’s annual “Big Ticket List.”

ArtPrize 9 will take place from September 20 to October 8, 2017
