When I'm asked about the beginnings of ArtPrize, I often try to point out that we didn't know anything about how it would work. We had ideas, hunches and theories...but few concrete elements to go by.

Thankfully, since those early days, ArtPrize has been blessed with an amazing group of supporters who are excited by its mission and possibilities, but also open to the unknowns that exist when you are trying new things. It is vital that ArtPrize maintains that pioneering spirit. Every year we have to be willing to change parts of our model, and every year we try to challenge ourselves by rethinking our models and launching new experiments, projects and programs.

Thank you for pioneering with us for the years past and the years to come.

Sincerely,

Rick DeVos
