The first day of ArtPrize is on Wednesday September 21st, but there are signs of it all over. Many pieces are up and many more are going up as I type this post. There will be even more pieces popping up and around downtown throughout the week.
I am SUPER excited to take students there Friday. We are going as a part of Artcation Day, through the Arts Council of Greater Grand Rapids.
Students will spend the day attending workshops at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art and the Grand Rapids Art Museum as well as walking around to take in the sights.
I will definitely be going downtown more than once in order to take it all in - with hundreds of artworks to see, there is no way one visit can fit it all in!
This is a very exciting time of year, and a great way to celebrate the start of Fall.
