Designed by TBG Partners and presented by Corewell Health and Priority Health, the ArtPrize Oasis is a temporary but transformative urban expanse along the Grand River offering guests a place to regroup and recharge. It re-envisions our urban environment, organizing the flow of people and space by the same principles as the river, and provides visitors three distinct functional areas for those seeking fun, respite, or connection. The Artist Lounge is a welcoming enclave where participants recharge and network. The Studio serves as a flex space for both private events and public activities. And the Public Activation Area features games, relaxing seating, and art installations presented by DGRI, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and Floor & Decor.
