Now seven years old, international arts competition ArtPrize continues to pull the art world off-axis, shifting attention away from bi-coastal centers like New York and Los Angeles to instead shine the spotlight on Grand Rapids, Mich.

  • ArtPrize worked with New York-based public relations firm, A&O to grow its national and international media coverage.
  • These efforts resulted in high-profile placements in Complex, New York Observer, New York Times, Hyperallergic, artnet, The Art Newspaper, and ArtForum.
It is heartening, in an age of easy entertainment and at the start of football season, to see the streets crowded with regular folk, turning out to participate in art as a spectator sport. Sort of the best this advocate of art as equal-opportunity recreation could hope for.
