ArtPrize 7 opens Wednesday, September 23. This year for the first time, the Calvin Alumni Board is funding an ArtPrize award in the amount of $1500 for a Calvin alumni ArtPrize participant. The award is funded through the Alumni Association Catalyst Fund. It allows Calvin College to acknowledge the contributions made to the world’s largest public art competition by Calvin alumni and to foster Calvin alumni appreciation of the visual arts in its urban community.
The winner will be determined by popular vote by Calvin alumni through a voting site linked at the Calvin Alumni website. Voting will be open to all Calvin alumni who visit ArtPrize in person. Any Calvin alumnus artist participating in ArtPrize 7 is eligible for the award.
Very important!!: If you know a Calvin alum who is an ArtPrize participant this year (or if you are), please send their name to Elizabeth VanArragon at firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
Voting will begin Wednesday, September 23 and will continue until Thursday, October 8 at midnight. The winner will be announced on the Calvin Alumni website on Friday, October 9 and publicly at the Calvin Homecoming Maroon and Gold Gala on Saturday, October 24.
