ArtPrize Registration Extended

Are you an artist that has thought about entering this year’s ArtPrize?  Good news – you still have time to get involved!  Registration has been extended; you can read all about it on the ArtPrize website.  Don’t forget that Spectrum Theatre on the Grand Rapids Community College Campus (where Actors’ Theatre performs) is one of the ArtPrize venues this year.

With More Competition, Venues Ask for More Time to Build Exhibitions

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – May 18, 2010 – While more than 1,000 artists have already begun their registration process to enroll in ArtPrize 2010, several of the more than 220 venues have reported that increased competition for artists has already begun for the 2010 event, and asked ArtPrize organizers to extend the artist registration deadline. ArtPrize officially announced that the artist registration date will be extended from May 27 to the new deadline of June 17, 2010. The matching period between the artist and venue will remain the same as published between June 1 and July 1, 2010.

“There is a huge demand for art this year,” said Bill Holsinger-Robinson, ArtPrize, Executive Director. “We’ve heard that many artists have informal agreements with venues already in place.” ArtPrize has gone from 159 to more than 220 venues. Many of the venues from 2009 have plans to increase the artists they’ll show
