ArtPrize news! This fall, we’re excited to collaborate with artist Oaklee Thiele and DisArt to bring the My Dearest Friends Project to downtown Grand Rapids through a large-scale exhibition on GRAM's exterior. Created by and for the disability community, My Dearest Friends was launched by Thiele and DisArt in March 2020 with an Instagram post inviting disabled people from around the world to share their experiences of marginalization, isolation, and discrimination due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the project has received over 350 submissions from the U.S. and around the world.
