We enter every year to be a part of the action and to remind ourselves that we are not the only artists on the planet. There is intense competition for visibility and votes. There is also risk in putting ourselves out there for the critical backlash. As serious artists it is well worth the effort and the risk. We artists learn from the public's response and we learn from the entire ArtPrize experience.
Selling the artwork is important for artists and we always hope to sell our entries or make connections for future work. Each year the results are different and several pieces can be seen around Grand Rapids where ArtPrize artwork has been permanently installed.
