ArtPrize Eight wrapped up in October, and we're continuing to reflect on all of the conversations, debates, curiosity and discovery that took place throughout the 19-day event. Whether you participated as an artist, venue, volunteer, visitor, sponsor or collaborator -- your contribution made the eighth annual event a success. Thank you!

We're in the thick of planning for the next edition of ArtPrize. In just eight short months, we'll once again welcome artists and visitors from around the world to downtown Grand Rapids.
