TODAY'S WEATHER

THANK YOU!

It's cool outside but the sun is out and it's pretty much a perfect fall Michigan day, ideal for exploring the 1550 entries, spread across 162 venues that have been so carefully displayed and maintained throughout the last 19 days for you to come and see. A HUGE thank you to all of the thousands of Artists, Venues, Volunteers, Sponsors and, of, course, Visitors, who came to ArtPrize this year and displayed, engaged, debated, supported and voted. We look forward to seeing you next year!
