Artprize Education Days


ArtPrize® is a radically open, independently organized international art competition and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

For 19 days, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, become an open playing field where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown, and it’s all free and open to the public.

It’s unorthodox, highly disruptive, and undeniably intriguing to the art world and the public alike.


GVSU ArtPrize Education Days provides the following for GVSU charter schools:

  • Educational art programming at GVSU DeVos Campus in downtown Grand Rapids
  • Lunch for students, teachers, and chaperones
  • Up to $1000/bus reimbursement per school
  • ArtPrize teacher packet delivered approximately 1 week before trip

Dates for ArtPrize Education Days 2016 will be announced in the Spring.

The program for 2015 has ended. We will notify all schools once registration is open for 2016. If you attended this year and would still like to submit your bus reimbursement, please use the form below.
