WGVU's new documentary, "ArtPrize: Rebooting the Conversation," takes a look at the unique two-and-a-half week event that took place in Grand Rapids in September and October, in which artists competed for a half million dollars in prize money. The event is seen through the eyes of the proprietors, artists, spectators, and critics, addressing issues from voting to venues.
The documentary can be ordered online from the WGVU Store.
WGVU news director Patrick Center spoke to the Grand Rapids Press about the project. A preview of the documentary can be viewed here:
