As I think about it, the ArtPrize schedule doesn’t seem to be used as best as it could be. It begins on a Wednesday, and ends two and a half weeks later on Sunday. Three weekends are included, but the last weekend isn’t used for voting. It seems to me it would be better to start on a Friday and end on a Tuesday, with the winners’ announcement Monday. Run the first “week” of voting through the first two weekends, announce the top 10 – or top pool, preferably – on that second Monday with the second “week” of voting running less than a week.
