The Rapidian and GRTV interviewed a variety of audience members after the Jurors' Shortlist event to get their reactions with the help of Community Journalist, Jim Moreno and Cameraman, Brandon Cooley. Larry Ossei-Mensah is a New York-based independent curator and cultural critic, and also co-founder of ARTNOIR. As an ArtPrize juror this year, he talks about the importance of making art accessible to everyone and ArtPrize's ability to take the intimidation out of art and allow people to interact with it.
