Call For Proposals: Art Prize Pitch Night 2016 says
ArtPrize is teaming up with the the Walker Art Center and mnartists.org in Minneapolis to host Pitch Night, an one night event where one artist will leave with a $5,000 grant to create an ambitious installation at a centrally located ArtPrize Venue.

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 contining the dynamic partnership with the Walker Art Center and Mn Artists 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 seventh floor of a downtown office building located at 200 Ottawa, 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 expert judges 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 200 Ottawa during ArtPrize 2016.

Pitch Night Minneapolis will take place on May 26 at 7:00 PM at the Walker Art Center. The event is free to the public.

How to apply:
