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, artists are awards $165,000 in grants directly to artists. One grant program, Pitch Night Detroit, is available only to Southeast Michigan artists, including those in Ann Arbor.
