With all the things that have been canceled and rescheduled over the past few years because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it's nice to have ArtpPrize back in Downtown Grand Rapids and the surrounding area.

Not only is it fun to walk around Grand Rapids with friends and family to see all of the amazing creations and works of art, but it also has a positive financial impact on our local community. According to Artprize, people visiting the city for the ArtPrize competition help bring in $33 Million for local businesses.
