Peaches is an elegant Georgian-style home located in Heritage Hill, now serving as Grand Rapids' premier B&B. Built in 1916, it is in nearly original condition, including picture rail in every room and would be the most natural place to hang art...in the setting that can display it best: home. We will be selecting both indoor hanging art, indoor sculpture and outdoor sculpture. We can practically "stop traffic" with our outdoor art selections. Last year, we had phenomenal response & were categorized as one of the best shows by several professionals. This year, we are close to an exhibit center, & taking more artists, so we expect more great response!

HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked and staffed with one mission in mind: to bring you great beer. What's a great beer? It's a beer made with care and pride. Maybe it's a local beer - or one from across the globe. It's your usual, as comfy as sliding into your favorite pair of jeans. It's a beer you didn't even know existed. It's a beer you hate, but your buddy loves - and the two of you debate over it for an hour. Hopefully, once in a while, it's a beer you never would have ordered but for the fact that your server suggested it. It's your next beer. HopCat. 150 bottles. 49 taps. One mission.

One Trick Pony Grill & Taproom is housed in the oldest Commercial Building in Grand Rapids. It is the venue of choice for local musicians who play there every Thursday night, and some Saturdays. Located in the theatre district, this venue also dedicates 2 walls in the east room to displaying works of art from the Grand Valley Artists Association, so it is ready to hang works of art. We are also looking for a statue and a large hanging stained glass piece to divide the restaurant and be a focal point. A favorite dining place for families, couples, business meetings and large groups delivering something to suit anyone's tastes! Their "one trick"....is hospitality!

Coit Creative Arts Academy is the elementary art school for the Grand Rapids Public Schools. The original building was built in 1880 and it is the oldest working school in Michigan. In 2002 it became an arts school. As a result families have moved into the neighborhood specifically to send their children to Coit Creative Arts Academy. Due to this the neighborhood is more art savvy than most others. It is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Medical Mile and within walking distance to downtown. With school budgets as they exist being an exhibitor at Coit Creative Arts Academy is a wonderful nod to the dedication artists feel toward arts education.

Since we are an operating business we have certain hours that our building has to be open to the public beyond the Artprize hours. Due to this any artwork on display here has the potential to be viewed above and beyond the minimum set hours. This came in handy for a lot of our Artprize guests last year that didn't want to fight the crowds or had to work in the evening. We had many guests stop in in the morning or early afternoon to view the work as well as some classes that took field trips here. We welcome and encourage this.
