ArtPrize names juried finalists
ArtPrize 2014 is one step closer to naming its juried winners.
ArtPrize’s four jurors revealed last night 20 finalists across four categories: 2-D, 3-D, installation and time based.
Seven of the finalists are Michigan artists and three of them are from Grand Rapids.
A member of the ArtPrize jury also named the finalists for the $20,000 Outstanding Venue Award.
One of the juried finalists is guaranteed to win the $200,000 Juried Grand Prize Award, while each of the juried category winners will win $20,000.
One of the yet-to-be-named public vote finalists will also win a $200,000 Grand Prize Award, while each of the public vote category winners will win $20,000.
