Steve Lambert, a finalist in this year’s ArtPrize competition says that if he wins, he will donate the money to the LGBT Fund of Grand Rapids. That’s potentially a lot of money. He’s been nominated in both the public vote, and by the jury. The top prize for each is worth $200,000. Currently, he’s up for the $20,000 Time-Based Juried Award and the $200,000 Juried Grand Prize. (He’s now out of the running for the public vote prize.)
