By the time ArtPrize 2011 rolled around, my wife and I had been in GR for less than two months.  No matter many people attempted to describe ArtPrize to me, no words can adequately convey what a big deal it is.  GR comes even more alive with people, energy and excitement during ArtPrize and I'm excited for it again this year.

Venues have been announced for s ArtPrize 2012.  They include Van Andel Arena, 6.25 Paper Studio in MoDiv, St. Mary's Catholic, Calder Plaza Building, The Establishment, GRCM, Women's City Club, McFadden's, Calvin College, City Flats Hotel, Founders, Georgio's, Meijer Gardens and many more.

Artist registration begins on April 23rd and you can find more information about that HERE.
