It snuck up on me once again, the artist registration for ArtPrize 2014 opened today and goes until June 5.
What is ArtPrize?
ArtPrize® is a radically open, independently organized international art competition and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
For 19 days, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, become an open playing field 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, and it’s all free and open to the public.
It’s unorthodox, highly disruptive, and undeniably intriguing to the art world and the public alike.
If I find a venue to show my work, 2014 will be my 5th year participating in ArtPrize. Each fall, I spend a long weekend in Grand Rapids to enjoy the event, the city, the locals and participating artists. The art is everywhere, it is accessible and no snobs in sight.
