ArtPrize in Grand Rapids has announced a new, independently organized international art competition to be known as ArtPrize Dallas.
Founded in 2009 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, ArtPrize offers $560,000 in prizes – the world’s largest prizes for contemporary art. It includes two 200.000 awards — one determined by a jury and the other by the public. Artists and venues connect online via artprize.org to present exhibits.
Ariel Saldivar, former Associate Director of the Goss-Michael Foundation, is the new Executive Director of ArtPrize Dallas. The ArtPrize Dallas district will encompass a three-mile radius from the heart of downtown. The first nineteen-day event is scheduled for April 2016.
