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.

The Women’s City Club is a private club which resides in the historic Sweet House and offers individual and business memberships. The WCC transforms their space for ArtPrize. While the main floor retains it's historic look, but with the installation of AP art, the Auditorium is converted to a modern gallery with the addition of contemporary walls and lighting. In 2006, the Sweet House Foundation, a (501 c 3) non-profit, was established to preserve the history and architecture of the house. Martin Sweet, the original owner of the house, was a young entrepreneur when he came to Grand Rapids in 1846. He dreamed of a distinguished and spacious home for his family and in the early 1860’s built this home on East Fulton. This Heritage Hill two-story Italianate Villa home survives as one of the remaining examples of this style of architecture in the latter part of the 19th century. For information on the house or the WCC, please call (616) 459-3321.

GRBC is located just 6 blocks from its original location at Ionia and Michigan, at the busiest corner of the vibrant Heartside entertainment district. Since opening HopCat, the craft beer focus of the GR bar scene has seen a virtual explosion, and it made us want to 'rescue' this great name in Grand Rapids history from the suburban indignity of being located in a mall parking lot. GRBC is proud to be the Midwest's first USDA-certified organic brewery. In keeping with the organic and local theme of GRBC, much of our interior space was created using reclaimed materials. Our tables were are made from the old floor joists pulled up as we began rehabbing the space. The barstools were made right here in GR, the art was done by local artist David Dodde, our host stand an old foreman's station from the Chris-Craft factory, we even gave the old fire door a coat of paint and hung it over the bar in the back room.
