ArtPrize looks ahead to PROJECT [1] in 2019

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Every year, the city of Grand Rapids becomes one giant canvas for ArtPrize. While that won’t change in 2019, the focus of the art will, with PROJECT [1].

“Instead of being the referees in the competition years for ArtPrize, we wanted to think about being collaborators,” said ArtPrize Executive Director Jori Bennett. “So in project years, we’re going to work alongside artists in more of a collaborative way, create financial resources for them, community connections, and allow them to do large-scale outdoor works across the city.”

Visitors won’t vote on any entries or feel the frenzy of trying to make it to more than 1,000 entries, but organizers hope they will still keep coming back for more.
