ArtPrize, the radically open art competition happening now in Grand Rapids, brings new ideas and fresh inspiration to Michigan. ArtPrize has become the world’s largest art competition by combining $560,000 in total prizes with an open call for artists, venues, and critics. This year is the fourth annual exhibition, bringing 1,517 confirmed entries from 56 countries and 45 states. The event is open to any Artist in the world who can find space, and anybody in Grand Rapids who wants to create a venue. One unique aspect of the competition is that the public’s vote decides who takes home the top prize.
We’ve rounded up photos of a number of submissions from this year’s ArtPrize event and want to know which is your favorite. Let us know in the comments section below!
