ArtPrize 2013 – It’s a Winner for Grand Rapids

2012-ArtPrize-Logo It's Year #5 for ArtPrize - So...Ready...Set...GO!  It's time to plan your attack on the ArtPrize venues to optimize your ArtPrize experience in Grand Rapids.  Here are some cool and helpful links available for the September 18 - October 6, 2013 ArtPrize Extravaganza.

Plan Your Visit

With over 1,400 pieces of Art...in over 400 venues in a three mile Grand Rapids downtown area - it is almost impossible to see everything.  Trust me - I have been coming to ArtPrize since the very beginning and have yet to see even half of the art available each year - so planning is essential.

Check out the Art

This link brings you photos of the Art itself - you can search by artists name, by the name of the art or do a random search.  This is a great overview, but a little 2"x 2" photo does not do a 6' or 10' tall sculpture or painting justice.

Events both before and during ArtPrize

So - you don't have to be "just" a spectator at the ArtPrize Events - you can learn...participate in the art...meet the artists...keep the discourse and discussion about art rolling in Grand Rapids.  This link is a good one to check out early before ArtPrize officially opens since there are a lot Pre-ArtPrize events to attend - most of them totally Free!!

Volunteer

We all know Grand Rapids is full of giving and involved folks - here is a perfect way to prove it to the world - VOLUNTEER!!  Participate in our Great City...meet new friends and cultivate old friends by volunteering together.  There are over 4,000 volunteer hours to fill - it's not too late to do your part. -
