Experimental Art

This is the category for artists whose artwork is hard to define in other conventional terms. Your work may be time based, or exist outside of the gallery or even easy to access public places. It may be ephemeral. Your work may include Performance Art, Installation Art, Conceptual Art, Assemblage, Happenings, and short videos. If you have documented your work in video, please make it 2 minutes or less. If your work is longer than 2 minutes, please email the Sheridan Prize for Art and tell us more about it, although a maximum length of 5 minutes will be the limit. If your work is in video, please upload it first to a YouTube channel and if accepted we can link to it.

If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.

And if you are a viewer, please consider donating a tax-deductible donation or perhaps purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!

If you were an artist and participated in the Prize, you could have signed up and then uploaded up to six of your works of art for $10 each. Your work would have been placed immediately up on this website for everyone to see, in one of more of the juried categories. Your work would then have been eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable mention. As well there are 2 voted awards which your work would also be eligible for!

Each category is awarded separately. There will be a winner at $500 and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each, per category for a total of 72 prizes! Each artist is eligible for one award per category. The Winner and 5 Honorable Mentions will be announced here as soon as possible after November 14! Please also come back after that date to see the results!
