About the Film
Who gets to decide what is good art? For three weeks in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the general public carries as much sway as international art critics. At ArtPrize, the world’s most-attended art show, both groups have equal power to award $500,000 to the best of a pool of more than 1,500 submissions. More Art Upstairs is a fascinating and entertaining demonstration of what happens when the cultural elite butts up against Midwest populism.
