Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Every late September into early October, Grand Rapids MI has an art event called Art Prize. Never had I been to an art event quite like this. Artists from all over the world come for this juried, fan voting exhibit where their art is featured in Museums, restaurants, store, parks, hotel...everywhere all over downtown Grand Rapids. We arrived Friday night along with 1.5 million other visitors. Never did we feel crowded because the city spreads out the venues all over. The art was so amazing...3D sculpture, painting, mixed media, fiber, metal...you name it, it was there. They even had art floating in the river that runs through the town. Next year is their 10th anniversary and I can't even imagine what will happen. If you have a chance to experience it...I highly recommend it. Stay in a hotel downtown and everything is in walking distance. Google Art Prize Grand Rapids and see for yourself...
