Here is part of what the ArtPrize announcement stated: 

ArtPrize operates according to a Mission and a set of Guiding Principles. Recently the ground shifted, and so far the policies and statements of the current  administration have made what were once broadly agreeable sentiments into urgent calls to action.The ArtPrize team is committed to these principles so we’re  compelled to speak out. ArtPrize opposes any efforts to:

  • Discriminate against anyone based on religion, race, gender, sexual identity, physical ability or economic status. 
  • Detain or persecute refugees and immigrants. 
  • Limit or undermine a free press or freedom of speech.  
  • Prevent any child in the United States from accessing a quality education that includes the arts and humanities.
