A truly collaborative effort that catalyzes a community, ArtPrize depends on a wide net of supporters coming together to create an unforgettable experience for visitors from around the world.
Large and small, indoors and out, ArtPrize Venues open their spaces to host artwork and visitors from around the world each year. In 2015, 162 Venues independently curated their spaces.
Through the ArtPrize Volunteer program, presented by Lake Michigan Credit Union, 790 community volunteers logged a total of 15,636 hours throughout the 2015 event. Volunteers were invaluable members of the ArtPrize team for 19 days, ensuring that the event runs smoothly and welcoming each visitor to the city.
CITY OF GRAND RAPIDS
City government played a critical role in the success of the 2015 event, from planning to execution. Through this collaborative effort, clean safe streets, beautiful public parks and the wide availability of public transportation options are possible at ArtPrize. The City served as a Parking and Mobility Partner for ArtPrize. Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. underwrote curation of outdoor city sites.
