Venues directly transform ArtPrize through the curation of their spaces.

ArtPrize is independently curated and organized, meaning it is up to the venues what art is exhibited during the competition.

A key part of what makes ArtPrize remarkable is the sheer variety of spaces that display art and welcome the world through their humble midwestern doors. In addition to artwork at incredible museums and galleries, we’re proud of our legacy of bringing art to places that surprise and delight. This includes everything from public spaces and major venues to shops, bars, auto body shops, shipping containers, restaurants, offices, churches, cafes, and so much more.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors converge on the city for ArtPrize. And when they do, we want them to spend time at the nearly 200 venues that register annually and enjoy all that our home has to offer.

Whether you’re a long-time ArtPrize venue or interested in becoming one for the first time, we are so excited for you to join us this fall!
