One-of-a-kind Award for ArtPrize Winner

October 8, 2009

In addition to $250,000 in prize money, the top winner of the ArtPrize competition will also receive a special medallion created by the Terryberry Company (terryberry.com), a 91-year-old Grand Rapids-based international provider of custom recognition products.
The medallion, made from sterling silver, is 2.5 inches wide x 2.25 inches high and .5 inches deep; it weighs approximately eight ounces. A hand-finishing process generated the matte background that is accented with polished lettering and the ArtPrize logo. The entire piece was then covered with a layer of 24K gold to create the stunning finished piece (note; photos attached).
“Once again, ArtPrize is able to connect with the established international design talent based in this part of Michigan,” said Rick DeVos, founder of ArtPrize. Only one medallion will be presented to the first place winner at the ArtPrize celebration.
“It’s an honor to showcase our work and to be a part of this new generation of creativity in Grand Rapids,” said Terryberry Managing Partner Mike Byam. “We join the hundreds of venues and corporate sponsors in our salute to the ingenuity and concept idea called ArtPrize, and we look forward to supporting the event for years to come,” Byam said.
ArtPrize founder Rick DeVos will present the awards to the Top Ten ArtPrize finalists at an open-to-the public event beginning at 7p.m. Thursday Oct. 8 in the Steelcase Ballroom of DeVos Place. The event is free.
