ArtPrize organizers have scheduled five neighborhood ‘GO TIME!’ events – a mini-scavenger hunt for those who want free ArtPrize gear.
Here’s how it works:
- You meet at a specific location during each neighborhood event.
- The ArtPrize Street Team gives you a ‘passport’.
- You get it stamped at different venues.
- The first 100 to come back with finished passport get free ArtPrize stuff.
Each of the five neighborhoods have their own events starting Friday.

“The go days is really our push to get people into the neighborhoods,” ArtPrize’s Brian Burch said. “It’s a starting point for you to explore that neighborhood.”
Last year ArtPrize organized five neighborhood parties with events like movies.
Burch says the goal is to get people out into the neighborhoods, instead of having people in one spot.
“That opens the doors to so much more of the neighborhood, not just this park or this parking lot or this particular venue,” Burch said.
Burch says each neighborhood has a unique personality.
“We have a beautiful downtown and it speaks wonders to people who come from outside,” Burch continued. “But there’s a lot more character than just the downtown, so we want to get that spread a little bit more.”
