Rick DeVos, founder and chairman of ArtPrize, on Wednesday announced a partnership with Walker Art Center in Minneapolis called ArtPrize Pitch Night.

Following an open call, five artists or curators from Minnesota will compete for $5,000 to install their work at the Gillett Bridge in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The fifth edition of the art competition takes place Sept. 18 to Oct. 6. The competition has $560,000 at stake, including a $200,000 first prize.

The public picks some winners and there also are juried awards. A documentary about the process behind the 2012 Juried Grand Prize also is planned.
