POP-UP Program, October 1st

Join us for a visit and private guided tour to the Annual ArtPrize International Art Festival and Competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Every year for 19 days in early fall, around 400,000 attendees descend upon three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown in over 160 venues—museums, galleries, bars, restaurants, theaters, hotels, public parks, lobbies, buildings, walls, bridges, laundromats, and auto body shops—and it’s all free and open to the public. This year the event runs between September 21 to October 9, 2016, and our member Katarina Anderson is facilitating a visit with a private guided tour to ArtPrize Festival on Saturday, October 1st.  Fee for private guided tour: $15/person. For further information: http://www.artprize. org/visit and http://www.artprize.org/ about
