We are a third generation family owned business. We print it all from commercial printing to walk up copies on the fly. No order is too large or too small for us. We have a special love for the arts and will be offering special ArtPrize packages for artists to print their marketing materials. We're local and have deep roots in Grand Rapids, Michigan. So come check out the Grand Rapids Printer near you. This year we are hoping to host one artist and have a lot of their work visible from the street through our windows. This protects the art and allows for guests to enjoy a beverage in the Bridge Street Social Zone while viewing. We're located at 404 Bridge Street NW Grand Rapids, MI 49504. Our doors have been open here since 1954. We love Bridge Street at all it has to offer our amazing community.

Small Post Office Boxes will make up this official venue located at the United States Postal Service - Ledyard Station, 120 Monroe Center NW. PO (Art)Box is specializing in small artwork since scale is often a majority factor in ArtPrize entries. Curator Sierra Cole says, "We all know that ArtPrize is about having a conversation about art, we just feel that most of the time that conversation revolves around large scale works of art. We want to flip that conversation and talk about how small works of art are just as viable as large scale works. They are just as challenging, time consuming, and complex as their large counterparts." PO (Art)Box will be viewable from a custom made outdoor mailbox bank that will be located just outside the Ledyard Post Office.

The Grand Rapids Children's Museum is two floors of hands-on interactive exhibits and daily drop-in programs that encourage discovery and learning through play. Founded in 1992 by four community members, GRCM began as a "museum without walls" until overwhelming community support inspired the board of directors to begin searching for a permanent home. In February of 1994, GRCM received its current building in downtown Grand Rapids as a gift. In July of 1997 it opened the doors to its new home. The philosophy of GRCM is based on the principle that children learn best when they direct their own learning. GRCM's programs are designed with the purpose of educating the whole child -- encompassing all subject areas as well as the individual learning styles of children preschool through elementary school age. GRCM's exhibits and programs consist of materials and activities that are participatory; and hands-on. GRCM's active learning approach encourages play and self-directed exploration.

The twenty ArtPrize entries at the Has Heart venue in Veterans Memorial Park feature the veterans’ struggle with homelessness, PTSD, military sexual trauma, and veteran suicide. During the current pandemic, we have all felt a bit of the veterans’ sense of isolation and loneliness. But we can learn from the perseverance and resilience represented in this diverse group of officer and enlisted vets. Despite their injuries or lack of artistic training, this new type of ArtPrize venue gives veterans a voice through the collaboration of story, struggle, and healing art.
