ArtPrize: Why These Finalists?

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — WOOD-TV 8 is partnering with ArtPrize to bring a two-night special broadcast asking, Why These Finalists?

This year the awards have been redesigned, making the public vote and juried picks equal.

ArtPrize wanted to further the conversation by having the experts weigh in on the public’s top picks and the jurors’ favorites – all in the two-night special broadcast.

“I think there’s some people who aren’t in the art world might assume that there’s sort of like a capital R right answer for what is good art in this professional art or academic art world and that’s just not true,” Kevin Buist, ArtPrize Exhibitions Director said.

The two-part special will air on WOOD-TV 8 October 6 and 7, just days ahead of the ArtPrize Finale.

ArtPrize starts September 24.
