ArtPrize is a venue which is great at bringing artists and people together to enjoy each other's points-of-view. The opportunity which is inclusive rather than exclusive to artist allows many artists the opportunity and access to have the opportunity to interact and display their work to a very receptive audience. Given the city of Chicago is only a two-hour drive/trainride to Grand Rapids it is really a unique opportunity for Chicago artists to have an opportunity to be rewarded for their passion and creation. For all artists who participate I wish you good luck and I look forward to taking the short drive from Chicago to Grand Rapids for the 2nd annual ArtPrize.
ArtPrize is a great way for artists to display their work for the appreciation and enjoyment of others. Grand Rapids which is only a 2 hour drive from Chicago makes the location very accessible to the great artistic talent found here in Chicago. The recognition and opportunity for financial reward for artists is definitely an additional benefit. The myriad of art and artist that will be exhibiting their work allows for a great conversation about art.
