Michigan's ArtPrize 2010 Announces Additional Juried Awards

GRAND RAPIDS, MI.- In addition to the $449,000 awarded to the top 10 artists based on a public vote, ArtPrize 2010 has additional juried awards. Two juried awards were introduced during the Awards Ceremony in 2009, but this year ArtPrize has intentionally pursued sponsorship and internationally recognized jurors to add to its program. More awards may be added closer to the event, based on sponsorship available.

2010 juried awards include:

• Best two-dimensional work (2D)
• Best three-dimensional work (3D)
• Best time-based work (Performance/Film/Video)
• An award for use of urban space

Beyond the categories listed above, specific criteria for juried awards will be determined by the jurors themselves. Sponsors for each award will be announced later. A minimum cash prize of $5,000 will go to the artist for each award. Sponsors may choose to increase the cash prize solely at their discretion.
