About ArtPrize

ArtPrize is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place for 19 days each fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which include a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.

Any artist working in any medium from anywhere in the world can participate. Art is exhibited throughout downtown Grand Rapids—museums, bars, public parks, restaurants, theaters, hotels, bridges, laundromats, auto body shops, vacant storefronts and office spaces. Artists and venues register for the competition then find each other through an online connections process in late spring. No one at ArtPrize selects a single artist or artwork, directs an artist where to show work or directs a venue what to show. In 2016, 1,453 works created by artists from 40 states and 44 countries were exhibited in 170 venues.

ArtPrize is free and open to the public and now attracts over 500,000 visitors, making it the most attended public art event in the world in 2014 and 2015, according the The Art Newspaper’s annual “Big Ticket List.”

Jurate Phillips Open House

Jurate Phillips (pronounced: You-ra-te) grew up in Soviet occupied Lithuania. From her earliest memories she has studied art and developed her talents in that field.  She graduated from Siauliu Universitetas, in Lithuania (1996), where she was classically trained in painting and design.

She came to the United States in 1997 where she has since graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design (2002).  She now resides in Columbus, Ohio with her husband and daughter.

Since her earliest days her passion has been for art in all forms. Jurate has partaken in the creation of many pieces from photography, to painting and sculpture. Her work can be found all over the world in both residential and commercial settings.

After working as an interior designer, freelance artist and teaching art she has returned to her first love, which is painting. She now focuses on painting regularly and exhibiting her work.

She credits most of her aesthetics to her maternal Grandmother, with whom she spent most of her summers. The natural beauty that surrounded her on her grandmothers farm has influenced the size, scope and subject matter ever since. Her emotions dictate to her what she will paint. One day she will do a landscape, another an abstract, or she might be inspired by a simple flower bloom.
