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.
The Calder Plaza Building venue welcomes all 2011 ArtPrize visitors! The CPB is located at 250 Monroe Avenue between Michigan Street and Lyon Street. Outdoor sculpture may be viewed on the west (Monroe Ave.) and east (Ottawa Ave.) sides of the building. During office hours, visitors may use the building's lobby as a short cut between viewing areas. Parking meters and parking lots/ramps are located throughout the downtown area. Visitors are welcome to take a break at one (or both) of our fine, casual cafes - Nunzia's Cafe and Taco Bob's. We are proud to be an ArtPrize venue, and we hope that you enjoy experiencing our selection of wonderful artwork!

Founders has built its brewery on the exploration of recipe development and brewing techniques. The philosophy is simple. We are not the standard micro-brewery, rather we have traveled a path that breaks from the “standard” craft-brewer. Carving a niche out of the craft industry, Founders Brewing Company has built its reputation on producing very unique beer. Our focus is to offer a product that stands alone on the shelf and offers a true drinking experience to our friends, you.

Ah-Nab-Awen Park is a long, narrow green space that runs along the west side of the Grand River. This park is adjacent to the Gerald R. Ford Museum and visible from the DeVos Convention Center (across the river). It is accessible by a pedestrian bridge that runs across the river as well as on-site parking. Another area of the park (not available for use for Artprize) houses three large, grassy mounds which were built in 1976 to symbolize Hopewell Indian burial mounds, which are native to the area. The park offers ample green space and a fantastic view of the Grand Rapids skyline.
