To Kickstart Michigan’s Economy, Rick DeVos Invests In Art & Startups
Launched in 2009, ArtPrize is billed as the “world’s largest” social art experiment. ArtPrize doles out $474,000 among 10 artists picked by public vote, who install their work in approved venues throughout the city. To date, the nearly three-week-long event has drawn the works of over 2,000 artists and introduced nearly half a million visitors and residents of Grand Rapids to the world of contemporary art. More than 460,000 people voted for the winners last year.
