The Women’s City Club is a private club which resides in the historic Sweet House and offers individual and business memberships. The WCC transforms their space for ArtPrize. While the main floor retains it's 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 East Fulton. 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. For information on the house or the WCC, please call (616) 459-3321.

Artist & Connection Information

The Women’s City Club, which occupies the historic Sweet House in the Hill District of Grand Rapids, is looking for art for the ArtPrize Exhibition to fill three very different areas of the facility. We seek one or more larger sculptural pieces for the lawn area, a wide variety of two and three dimensional art to fill the Auditorium Gallery, which is a very modern gallery space constructed specifically for ArtPrize, and a number of traditional works to compliment the historic first floor, including small, 3-dimensional pieces to fill the two lighted and locked display cases. While we are interested in most media, we are not suited to images that require a darkened space. Our goal is to fill this former home which has such a rich history with high-quality art and give artists the opportunity to compete for the ArtPrize awards and also to provide a market for art to our members and visitors. To that end we also install a Gallery Shop to sell other works supplied by our AP Artists.
