It's going to be a very special night.

While tickets for the live event at the Civic Theatre are scarce, the pre-party, big-screen broadcast, and after party at Rosa Parks Circle are open to everyone.

A city-wide street party brought to you by WOOD TV8—including food trucks, Founders' beer, live music by Troll For Trout and Domestic Problems—will complement the thrilling announcement of the winners of ArtPrize 2014.

About Troll For Trout

Grand Rapids-based Troll for Trout are back this year for the ArtPrize Concert Series. They have been called the quintessential Michigan band. They first assembled in 1993 and play a few shows a year. They are a folk rock band that will bring out their very dedicated fan base—especially when paired with their friends, Domestic Problems.

About Domestic Problems

With their members now scattered across the country, Grand Rapids-based Domestic Problems only play a couple shows a year. We are honored to have them back again this year for the ArtPrize Awards Pre-Show. With their dancing horn section and party band persona, Domestic Problems will keep the energy level up all night long.
