ArtPrize® is a radically open, independently organized international art competition. Occurring annually, the 19-day competition turns three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, into an open playing field for art and creative expression. At ArtPrize, everyone is invited to find a voice in the conversation about what art is, and why art matters. It’s unorthodox, highly disruptive, and undeniably intriguing to the art world and the public alike. ArtPrize 2014 takes place September 24 – October 12. 

DeVos Place Venue Hours:
Mon-Thurs 9:00am-8:00pm
Fri & Sat  9:00am-10:00pm
Sunday 12:00pm-6:00pm
