The B.O.B. (an acronym for Big Old Building) is located in downtown Grand Rapids. The 70,000-square-foot, four- story, red brick building was constructed in 1903 as Judson's grocery warehouse. It stood vacant for decades before The Gilmore Collection began its transformation, saving it from demolition. Its casual appeal, large size and historic charm have given The B.O.B. landmark / destination status in downtown Grand Rapids. Ambitious, expansive, and versatile, The B.O.B. offers a uniquely personal experience for every guest who walks through the door.

Monroe Community Church meets in an open renovated warehouse space in the heart of the North Monroe neighborhood, which is home to galleries, parks, studios, restaurants, offices, and condos. Our main space for ArtPrize will be our 62’ x 64’ multi-use assembly space that includes a library/lounge, screen, and an open kitchen. One of the interior walls is the former exterior wall of the building next door, featuring interesting brickwork and enclosed masonry window openings. The space has a lot of raw character with sealed concrete floors, painted block and brick walls, and 18’ high exposed steel structure. This very rugged space is not precious and could tolerate custom display and fastening systems for installation artwork. Worship seating can adapt to fit the art we host. We have an array of flexible theatrical light fixtures. We will be open for at least the Minimum hours and our staff will also work in the space for SOME of the extended hours, depending upon work schedules.
