Lou: Art Prize Pitch Night says
ArtPrize is partnering with 21c Museum Hotels for Pitch Night, an evening where a panel of judges will chose a winner, who receives a $5,000 grant to realize their proposal at Lyon Square in Grand Rapids, Michigan during ArtPrize Nine, September 20-October 8, 2017.

For 19 days in the early fall, around 400,000 attendees descend upon three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan 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 in over 160 venues—museums, galleries, bars, restaurants, theaters, hotels, public parks, lobbies, buildings, walls, bridges, laundromats, and auto body shops—and it’s all free and open to the public.

Proposals are now being accepted for Pitch Night Louisville through April 26. Artists are invited to submit proposals for an installation on Lyon Square, in the heart of the ArtPrize district. Five artists will be selected to give a five-minute presentation at the Pitch Night Louisville event on May 15 at 7pm, using five slides each. A panel of five expert judges and the audience will be able to ask questions of the artists following the presentations. The panel will select the winner, awarding the winning artist a $5,000 grant to realize their proposal at Lyon Square during ArtPrize Nine, September 20-October 8, 2017.

The judges for Pitch Night Louisville are:
Barbara Kutis, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts - Art History, Indiana University Southeast
Miranda Lash, Curator of Contemporary Art, Speed Art Museum
Sarah Lindgren, Public Art Administrator, Louisville Forward
Scott Massey, Director, Allen R. Hite Art Institute and Chairperson, Department of Fine Arts, Associate Professor, Sculpture, University of Louisville
Karen Gillenwater, Museum Manager, 21c Museum Hotel
