MOCAJ Hosts FREE “ArtPrize” Event

ArtPrize 2010 Retrospective from Paul Moore on Vimeo.

ArtPrize is  designed as a very different art competition, the goal is for the general public and artists to collide, exchange ideas and come away changed.It is part arts festival, part social experiment – this international contest is decided solely by public vote. The event is designed for you to take it into your own hands and make it what you want it to be.

The Cultural Council will host a FREE speaking engagement about ArtPrize, by Bill Holsinger-Robinson at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, 5 p.m., April 11. Reserve a seat by calling the Cultural Council at (904)358-3600.

“It breaks down art world hierarchies, letting the public pick winners and allowing everyone who can find a venue to exhibit to show their work.” –The Detroit Free Press
