The venue is in the historic Sweet House which is transformed for ArtPrize. While the main floor retains its historic look, but with the installation of AP art, the Auditorium is converted to a modern gallery with the addition of contemporary walls and lighting. In 2006, the Sweet House Foundation, a (501 c 3) non-profit, was established to preserve the history and architecture of the house. Martin Sweet, the original owner of the house, was a young entrepreneur when he came to Grand Rapids in 1846. He dreamed of a distinguished and spacious home for his family and in the early 1860’s built this home on the corner of Fulton and Lafayette. This Heritage Hill two-story Italianate Villa home survives as one of the remaining examples of this style of architecture in the latter part of the 19th century.

Harmony Hall started off as a sausage factory in 1908, then later in the ‘60s it became Little Mexico, a restaurant the VanDyke family loved back in the day. Thus, Harmony Hall opened in 2015 with an expanded ten-barrel system and five large fermentation tanks. They hit the ground running with 30 beers on tap, including some great lagers to celebrate the German heritage of the building. Much of the original Bavarian architecture and Mexican relief murals were preserved in homage to the past occupants. The whimsical decor was inspired to life by the infamous Jack-of-the-Woods spirit muse—his leafy visage always giving thoughtful and quiet approval to Harmony’s creations.
