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!

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.

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.
