Pamela's ArtPrize Installations

ArtPrize is the world's largest open art competition, drawing more than 500,000 visitors to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since its inception, veteran ArtPrize artist Pamela Alderman has become known for creating situational art that focuses on various social issues. These participatory art projects invite individuals into healing processes as they engage in art-making. As a result, the public has voted Pamela's work as a top finalist for seven consecutive years, including top 20 in 2015. These popular installations have also traveled to different places, including university campuses, Phoenix during the Super Bowl, and the Pentagon in Washington D.C.

Pamela captures and conveys personal topics with truthful integrity. Her artistic style connects sometimes difficult subject matter with audiences through raw relational emotion in a voice of hope, triumph, and inspiration.
