What does an artist do with $5,000, 400,000 people, and 9,000 square feet? ArtPrize is teaming up with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis to find out.

Every fall, over 1,500 artists from around the world descend on Grand Rapids, Michigan, to compete for half a million dollars in prizes. Their installations fill the city, from museums and galleries to restaurants, banks, and city parks. During the two-and-a-half-week exhibition, the public votes to choose the winner of a $200,000 grand prize and four $12,500 category winners. Simultaneously, world-renowned jurors select a $200,000 Juried Grand Prize winner, and four $12,500 juried category winners.

ArtPrize is partnering with the Walker Art Center and to help fund an ambitious project by a Minnesota artist for a prominent ArtPrize venue. Artists will create proposals for an installation on the empty second floor of a downtown office building located at 250 Monroe, in the heart of the ArtPrize district. Five artists will be selected to give a five-minute presentation using five slides each. A panel of five experts and the audience will be able to ask questions of the artists following the presentations. The panel will select the winner, who receives a $5,000 grant to realize their proposal at 250 Monroe during ArtPrize 2015.

Pitch Night Minneapolis will take place on May 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Walker Cinema. The event is free and open to the public.
