Two years ago, I wrote on ArtPrize for Philanthropy magazine–so last week’s story in the Wall Street Journal is my second time covering the world’s most lucrative art award. From the earlier piece:

The organizers of ArtPrize don’t try to micromanage any of it. “It’s very libertarian,” says DeVos. “We realized that the more rules we had, the more nightmares we’d have to deal with. We don’t want to police artists and venues. Our notion of the event is that everything will work itself out through all of these markets.”
