ArtPrize – the Nation’s Largest, Juried Art Competition

If you happen to be within 100 miles of Grand Rapids, MI within the next few weeks, I highly recommend that you make it a point to travel there for ArtPrize, the nation’s largest juried art competition, which opened September 23 and runs through October 11.

What makes this event so special? It is citywide, curated and judged by both the venues and the public and offers more than $500,000 in awards, including two $200,000 awards to winning artists. Yes, it’s a big prize.

This is an event that no art lover should miss, whether you are an artist, collector or simply like a good party. The city of Grand Rapids does an amazing job of hosting and the weather generally cooperates, making this a first class experience for all who attend.

For me, it’s particularly exciting to see so many artists from our area being represented this year, particularly my friend Leslie Adams who I have known since high school, and who’s fine work is being exhibited in the Gerald Ford Museum this year, so if I am biased, please forgive me. But I encourage anyone reading this article to be sure to visit and vote for Leslie.
