The ArtPrize® event is a radically open international art exhibition and social experiment. Since 2009, it has redefined how art can create community. It brings together an unprecedented conversation between people of all backgrounds and a critical dialog between the art world and the general public. Through a mix of public vote and juried prizes it distributes $560,000 in awards--the world's largest.
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition is known for it's controversial $200,000 top prize determined solely by public vote. In 2012, however ArtPrize made the unexpected and equally controversial move to add a $100,000 prize juried by a panel of three internationally regarded art experts.
In this revealing documentary short, director Brian Kelly pulls back the curtain to share the story behind the ArtPrize 2012 $100,000 Juried Grand Prize.
