Is it just me, or are you thinking the same thing, what happened to summer? It was just June and now, school has begun and ArtPrize 10 is less than 4-weeks away. 

From September 19th to October 7th, people, literally from around the world, will be prowling downtown Grand Rapids and the surrounding area, viewing and voting for their favorite work of art.

Venues throughout the area will be presenting all mediums of art, including the Grand Rapids Art Museum.

Visitors to the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) during ArtPrize 2018 will get a special experience as two current exhibitions, Anila Quayyum Agha: Intersections and Mirror Variations: The Art of Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, will be on display through Oct. 7, the last day of ArtPrize 2018. During ArtPrize, there will be no admission charge for these exhibitions. Mirror Variations and Intersections had been scheduled to end Aug. 26.

In 2014, Intersections won the ArtPrize Public Vote and Juried Grand Prize, the first and only time in the international art competition’s history. Four years later, Intersections remains equally as popular.
