ArtPrize is coming to Dallas. Yesterday, the Grand Rapids-based 501-c3 announced via email that they have entered into a three-year charter agreement to launch and oversee a new, independent non-profit named ArtPrize Dallas. Following the format of ArtPrize Grand Rapids, the event will be held in the city of Dallas for 19 days, and will offer up to $500,000 in cash prizes and grants to artists. ArtPrize Dallas is slated to launch in April 2016 with Executive Director Ariel Saldivar at the helm. Prior to this, she worked as the Associate Director of the Dallas-based Goss-Michael Foundation.
