Louisiana artists are invited to learn more about the Pitch Night grant program on March 30 at 7pm at the CAC.
ArtPrize is teaming up with the the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans to host Pitch Night, a one-night event—June 5 at 7pm—where an 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.
In the months leading up to ArtPrize, $165,000 in grants is awarded directly to artists.
One grant program, Pitch Night New Orleans, is available only to Louisiana artists.
