Thirty-eight venues will host 400 artists for the fifth annual Art.Downtown this Friday in Grand Rapids.

Grand Rapids continues to embrace art, not just during ArtPrize, but throughout the year.

The success of Art.Downtown is a fine example of that support.

Art.Downtown is Friday, April 11, in Grand Rapids. The event is from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Venues participating include: Grand Rapids Art Museum, Kendall College, Cathedral Square, Craft House, Harris Building, UICA, and more.

The maps HERE and HERE will help you get around town during Art.Downtown.

Grand Rapids Trolley will provide free rides throughout the event.

The event is organized by Avenue for the Arts. Avenue for the Arts explains their history:

The Avenue for the Arts is a neighborhood title for the South Division commercial corridor. We are residential, commercial and nonprofit groups working together in a creative community. We are residents in Heartside, and active participants in shaping change in our neighborhood. In 2005, we choose the Avenue for the Arts as a title to represent our commercial corridor and the projects and events that we create.
