Artprize Education Days

Thank you to all of our schools that participated in ArtPrize Education Days this year!

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
