Voting will Continue for the final twenty artworks until midnight October 9th. The Top vote recipient in each category will receive $20,000 and the artwork receiving the most votes will receive an additional Grand Prize of $200,000. There will be an additional, juried award of $280,000 for the same categories and Grand Prize for a total of $460,000 awarded to the artists. Comparing the lists of the popular votes and the juried selections, it appears there is only on intersection between the two list. Oddly enough, that is the artwork title “Intersections” located at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
