ArtPrize logo 2.0

Sept 14 - Oct 1, 2023

A collaboration among The City of Grand Rapids, Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. (DGRI) and the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD).

This fall, the radically open art competition returns with new energy, new collaborations, and a full slate of cultural experiences. At the same time, we're returning to our roots, to what's made ArtPrize - at its best - a celebration of both creativity and the city of Grand Rapids.

For eighteen days, we'll gather once again in the vibrant atmosphere we've all come to love. And this year, each of those days will feature fresh, exciting programming, making each visit to ArtPrize 2.0 unique and memorable.

Registration for artists and venues begins soon, so start making your plans.

And check this space often, because in the weeks ahead we'll unveil detailed information regarding:

  • Venue and Artist registration processes
  • Artist Grants
  • Education Programs
  • Creative partnerships
  • ...and more

And in the meantime, get excited. Because we are.
