ArtPrize is teaming up with 21c Museum Hotel Durham to host Pitch Night – a one-night event where an artist will leave with a $5,000 grant to create an ambitious installation at a centrally-located ArtPrize Venue during the ninth annual event this fall.
On WED 04.05.17 at 7pm, join us for an Information Session about ArtPrize and the Pitch Night grant program. Stacey Kirby, winner of the 2016 Pitch Night held at 21c Durham, will speak about her experiences and share tips for artists interested in presenting their work at ArtPrize. Join us for this chance to find out about the ArtPrize phenomenon and how to apply for Pitch Night.
