ARTPRIZE GRANTS FOR ARTISTS
ARTIST SEED GRANTS
Launched in 2014 with the support of the Frey Foundation, ArtPrize Artist Seed Grants award 25 artists $2,000 each to fund their ambitious, challenging ArtPrize entries. Grant recipients were selected by the ArtPrize Art Advisory Council, a panel of advisors comprised of national and local art world luminaries, critics, curators and artists. The selected artists demonstrated both financial need and artistic merit.
PITCH NIGHT GRANTS
ArtPrize Pitch Night, presented by Delta Air Lines, returned for a third year, expanding to include events in Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Durham. Each event elicited work from five artists who were given five minutes to sell their public art concept to a panel of art experts. The three winning artists were each awarded a $5,000 grant and a spot in a prominent park venue in downtown Grand Rapids.
