District Map

Get ready to explore a huge, vibrant artscape.

The ArtPrize District spans nearly four square miles of the urban core in Grand Rapids. Visit the 'Exhibits' page on our website to view all the venues featuring ArtPrize entries this year. The Pantone Pathways, presented by X-Rite Pantone, returns for its eighth year. Pantone Pathways are a self-guided tour using colorful vinyls on the sidewalk that represent four unique routes in the North, South, Center City, and West ArtPrize districts to help you discover Venues and entries.
