We also boast one of the largest outdoor patios in the city with a view of the Boardwalk Condo landscaped courtyard, pool and fountain.

At Yoga HEAT, we give our students a challenging practice, full of possibility. We believe these elements are also an important part of art, sharing art with the world, and particularly ArtPrize. This event challenges artists to share themselves with the community and the world, giving them the possibility of amazing returns, both spiritual and financial. We are opening our doors to ArtPrize to share in this spirit! With an industrial feel and vibrant energy, we challenge you to come to our venue and see the possibility within our walls.

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. Because of 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 for our children.
MCC is an emerging Christian faith community whose mission is “Connecting our downtown community with our life-changing God.” As image-bearers of the Creator, we seek to honor God through celebrating the creative talents of our members, friends, and the community. We embrace and encourage the arts through various community events and activites. Each year for ArtPrize, we conduct a 4-week series of worship services based upon themes generated by some of the art that we host. We typically have an opening reception, an open-mic artist night, and can host special receptions for a small fee. We typically host many K-12 school class trips at our venue. This year we expect to offer several opportunities for hands-on art experiences led by artists and other experts in their fields. We have been involved in ArtPrize every year, and artists often tell us that they feel that they become part of our community, and leave as friends. A $50 venue fee covers promotions and insurance.
We have been a strong supporter of ArtPrize since the beginning. We love downtown Grand Rapids and have been a business owner at this facility since 2000. We are one block East of the Historical Sixth Street Bridge. This is an outside venue so can be viewed anytime of the day or evening.
