The Winner

The winner will be announced online after voting is completed, and will be announced publicly at an October campus event to be announced soon.

The Award

The Calvin Alumni Association Board, through its Catalyst Grant program, has funded this Alumni ArtPrize Award. The award will be given to a single Calvin alumna/us participant in ArtPrize 8, determined by popular vote. The alumni board has funded this award for three years with the hope that a Calvin alumna/us or group of Calvin alumni will continue funding the award after the initial three years.
