Relive ArtPrize 2013 in Exhibition at the Grand Rapids Art Museum

For the past four years, ArtPrize has been easily among the most anticipated events in Grand Rapids.

ArtPrize is 2½ weeks in late September and early October celebrating art with thousands of people visiting from aross the country for the public art competition.

Alas, following the announcement of the winners, the displays are taken down and other events take its place.

I don't know about you, but I always find myself feeling a bit empty when it's over.  It's such a big build-up to the event and a virtual party downtown during ArtPrize weeks. Then, it's back to reality.
