ArtPrize is intense.

ArtPrize completely takes over Grand Rapids with art.

Then suddenly it's over.

Going cold turkey can be tough, but GRAM is making the ArtPrize offseason a little more bearable.

Going cold turkey from ArtPrize ends the day after Thanksgiving.

Seems fitting.

For the second straight year, Grand Rapids Art Museum will feature some of the best of ArtPrize after the event.

Last year 13 ArtPrize artists were featured. This year there will be 15.

The 2013 ArtPrize entries will be on display at GRAM from November 29, 2013 - October 12, 2014. reports:

The  nearly 11-month exhibition, ‘GRAM Selects ArtPrize 2013: Encore’ is featuring works of art from nine different venues from ArtPrize 2013.

After searching through thousands of pieces of art, the team chose 15 to be on display starting Friday until October of 2014.

Not only can you check out these 15 pieces, you can also see ‘Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore’ – the winning piece from this year’s contest.

Looking forward to stopping by GRAM!
