Description

Volunteer with i understand during ArtPrize! Sign up for as many shifts as you like and feel free to bring a family member or friend. You will be asked to stand by Daniel Carlson's work, "The Door is Always Open" and share the meaning behind this piece and hand out information cards that include the official ArtPrize vote number 66344 and the mission of i understand. This piece is for sale and any potential prize money will be donated to help sustain i understand's mission as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to support people impacted by suicide and mental illness in West Michigan and beyond.

Volunteers are asked to wear the official i understand "The Door is Always Open" ArtPrize t-shirt (provided to volunteers for free) during their volunteer time slot and be a positive and welcoming presence! Volunteers are asked to stand during their shift and encourage pedestrians on the corner of Michigan/Monroe to see the work and vote! Smoking, drinking or the use of any substances is NOT permitted on the grounds of Michigan State University Grand Rapids Research Center or while wearing the official i understand "The Door is Always Open" logo shirts in public.

During Round 1 of voting, every entry at every Venue in the ArtPrize District is in the running for the big prizes. Round 1 Voting for ArtPrize Nine will run from September 20 at Noon to September 30 at 11:59 p.m.

When Round 1 closes, the top five entries from each of the four categories move on to Round 2, alongside 20 entries decided by a jury of art experts. The forty finalists will compete for the two $200,000 Grand Prizes and eight $12,500 category awards.

THANK YOU for your interest and willingness to help cultivate conversation about mental health! Together, we can raise awareness, eliminate stigma and share the "open door" message.
