ArtPrize 2016

I recall traveling to downtown Grand Rapids as a child. It felt lifeless, with little happening and few people who weren’t homeless. It wasn’t a place you’d want to visit unless required, and I rarely felt safe driving through. The state of GR at that time probably wasn’t that dire, but…

Jump ahead a few decades, downtown Grand Rapids is now the “it” spot, growing and expanding with entertainment and restaurants. ArtPrize is another element that’s brought people downtown, and it’s pretty damn awesome to have.

ArtPrize: “…is a radically open international art competition decided by public vote and expert jury that takes place each fall in Grand Rapids — and it’s all free and open to the public.” Visit their site at
