ArtPrize® is an open, independently organized international art competition and festival held annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Launched in 2009,[1] ArtPrize is unique in that anyone over the age of 18 can be an artist and any space within the ArtPrize district can be a venue; the entire exhibition is independently organized by venues and artists who connect through artprize.org; and the $500,000 in cash prizes awarded annually are decided equally by smartphone-enabled public vote and a jury of art experts.[2]

ArtPrize is recognized as the most-attended public art event on the planet according to The Art Newspaper,[3] and was recently highlighted in The New York Times’ 52 Places To Go in 2016.[4]

For 19 days in the early fall, around 400,000 attendees descend on three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown in over 160 venues—museums, galleries, bars, restaurants, theaters, hotels, public parks, lobbies, buildings, walls, bridges, laundromats, and auto body shops—and it’s all free and open to the public.

Concept[edit]

Thousands of ArtPrize visitors gather in Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids.

Radically open by design, ArtPrize was conceived to disrupt the traditional top-down art contest with a totally new type of event. Any artist in the world could compete; anyone with property in downtown Grand Rapids could turn their space into a venue; and any visitor could vote for their favorite artwork. Event organizers would provide no selection committees or curators. And the largest cash prize in the art world would be awarded entirely by popular vote.

At the inaugural ArtPrize, held in 2009, the winners were determined solely by the public, voting from mobile devices and the ArtPrize website.[5] In 2010, ArtPrize added categories judged by art experts,[6] and in 2014 restructured the awards format[7] bringing two parallel tracks of public vote and juried awards with equal prize amounts. The updated award structure includes two Grand Prizes of $200,000, one chosen by public vote and one selected by a panel of three arts experts. An additional $100,000 in awards are given to artists in four entry categories -- Two-Dimensional, Three-Dimensional, Time-Based, and Installation -- as well as the Outstanding Venue Juried Award for best curatorial presentation.[8][9]

Visitors must attend the annual event in person in order to vote. They can either download the ArtPrize mobile app, free for iOS and Android devices, which uses location services to determine when a visitor has stepped into the three square-mile event district -- or visit an ArtPrize HUB location to register in person. Each artist is assigned a 5-digit vote code which is posted near their entry during the event, and available both online and in the mobile app.[10]

2009 competition[edit]

The 2009 exhibition occurred in a 3-square-mile (7.8 km2) area of downtown Grand Rapids, from September 21 to October 9, 2009. 1,262 artists or artist collaboratives displayed their work in 159 venues.[11][12] 200,000 attendees visited the event, with 334,219 total votes cast throughout the 19 days.

Controversy[edit]

David Dodde’s Fleurs et riviere was an entry that placed magnetic flowers on the Alexander Calder sculpture La Grande Vitesse. After getting complaints, the City of Grand Rapids contacted the Calder Foundation to get their input. Calder's grandson, Alexander S. C. Rower, replied: "The initiative is luckily temporary and reflects an utter lack of understanding and respect of Calder's genius." The city decided to have the flowers removed before the end of the exhibition.[29]
