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.
