DeVos Place Convention Center

DeVos Place will once again serve as a catalyst, as a vital space to convene, think, witness, ponder, and/or inspire you to be engaged in art. Art is art when it is declared as such. It adds to the celebration of life. We are part of that daring venture that will offer all of the useful and necessary tools for the perfect gathering of artists and their work. It is our desire that your ArtPrize experience at DeVos Place is brought to you full of fun, creativity, a little tension, honest conversation and a modicum of humor.
