Experience Grand Rapids has supported and promoted ArtPrize from year one, and this year we're investing more time and resources than ever to ensure ArtPrize's success. Why? We recognize that ArtPrize is not only a showcase of remarkable art but also an event that brings people together and catalyzes conversation about Grand Rapids as a cultural art destination year-round.

Keeping ArtPrize a Staple

With ArtPrize under new leadership this year, Experience Grand Rapids is promoting the event to get people excited about seeing the art and experiencing what the city has to offer. This includes promoting the event to residents and tourists alike. Visiting friends and relatives is a main reason that people come to Grand Rapids. We're working to get the word out about ArtPrize to locals so that they can in turn invite their friends and families to visit.
