Pitch Night Durham @ 21c Museum Hotel Durham
May 17 @ 7:00 pm

ArtPrize, the independently organized art competition recognized as the world’s largest annual public art event, is teaming up with 21c Museum Hotels in Durham to host its signature Pitch Night Durham event which is free and open to the public. Five artists living and working in North Carolina were selected through a competitive application process and will pitch their ideas for an ambitious installation at ArtPrize Nine to a live audience and panel of five judges. One will walk away with a $5,000 grant to execute this project at a prominent ArtPrize venue in Grand Rapids, Michigan, this fall. The winner of Pitch Night Durham will be in the running for $500,000 in cash prizes. Last year’s Pitch Night Durham winner, Stacey Kirby, went on to win the $200,000 ArtPrize Juried Grand Prize.
