ArtPrize 2013 begins September 18!

Event organizers and volunteers are working hard to prepare for the big event, but more volunteers are still needed.

Volunteer training is going on this week and Saturday, September 14 is the deadline to sign up to volunteer at ArtPrize 2013.

Most volunteer shifts still needed to be filled are for "wayfinders". describes the job of a Wayfinder:

Serve as an ArtPrize tour guide and ambassador of downtown Grand Rapids! You’ll be equipped with maps and other resources and assigned to a specific location in the ArtPrize District where you’ll welcome visitors, provide directions, answer questions, and promote activities and Venues in your area. Must be willing and able to be on your feet for 3-hour shifts.

ArtPrize can't happen without volunteers.  If you'd like to help as a volunteer at ArtPrize 2013, get started right here!
