Brief Description

On Monday, March 12, ArtPrize will host the $15k ArtPrize Artist Challenge, a SXSW Interactive event at Michigan House. Five artists from around the country will pitch their ideas for ambitious projects they envision on Calder Plaza during ArtPrize 10 – in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Each will present for five minutes, using up to five slides to describe their proposal to a live audience and a panel of five judges. One artist receives a $15,000 grant to install the project at ArtPrize 10, slated to take place from September 19 to October 7, 2018. At ArtPrize, the project will compete for $500,000 in prizes determined by jury and public vote.
