It’s coming…It’s here…It’s gone…   That’s about how fast ArtPrize will seem if you jump in with both feet and enjoy this wonderful Art Extravaganza  right here in Grand Rapids from September 19 – October 7, 2012.   Check out the schedule of events here.

Highlights for me are:

1.  10 day public voting period (September 19 – 29).

Here is your chance to walk around downtown, take the ArtPrize bus, check out the venues, talk to the artists and get a feel for all the phenominal art all around GR – then take your smart phone and give the art and artists your votes as you take in everything.  I love that you have 10 days to do this – you won’t feel rushed (although it’s really hard even in that amount of time to see everything).  Plan your visit here.

2.  Announcing the Top Ten – September 30, 2012

This announcement in Rosa Parks Circle steps the competition up a notch.  The public has spoken with their voting – (in other words – YOU have spoken with your voting) and the top ten vote getters are the finalists.  Once these are announced you can only vote for one of the Top Ten – and if you have not already seen all of the Top Ten – it’s time to get out and make it a point to see them all!  Grab dinner at one of our great local restaurants and make it an evening with friends and family.  Now it’s down to 5 days to cast your finalist vote!

3.  Grand Prize Winners Announced

This year there are more prize winners than ever – both the Juried and the Populous Prizes will be announced on Friday the 5th of October at 7:30pm (location to be determined).   Check out the difference in the two prize categories.   Lots and Lots of $$$$ to the winners – it’s  the largest Art Prize in the WORLD…and it’s right here in Grand Rapids!

Let me know what your favorite part of ArtPrize is – I’m loving the showcase of Grand Rapids and all it has to offer.
