The ArtPrize HUB at 41 Sheldon Blvd is ArtPrize headquarters. The HUB will host talks, events, retail sales and last year's winner "Intersections".

The grand opening of The HUB is Saturday, September 19, from 9AM - Noon.

The HUB's grand opening always draws a crowd. That could have something to do with the cider and donuts that will once again be available from Sietsema Orchards.

The grand opening will also provide the first chance to register to vote and purchase new ArtPrize gear. The colors of this year's apparel will include a nod to some of Michigan’s most popular sports teams.

“The Inspiration behind the retail line was to focus not just on the ArtPrize event but on the community behind ArtPrize,” noted Todd Herring, ArtPrize Director of Creative and Communications.

The first chance to see 2014 winner "Intersections" will be another highlight of the grand opening and one winning artist Anila Quayyum Agha is looking forward to. Agha said, “I am thrilled to show Intersections at the HUB for ArtPrize Seven. It will be a wonderful homecoming!”
