SVG’s Weekend Guide to ArtPrize!

By SVG / September 18, 2014 /

It’s that time of the year again! Art Prize, the international art competition located right here in downtown Grand Rapids, begins on Thursday, September 24th, and runs through October 12th. While exhilarating, the task of navigating through large crowds to view countless art venues can be a tad overwhelming, so we’ve created an easy weekend guide for everything you need to know to make your experience fun and stress-free! Before starting out, stop by any Grand Rapids Meijer location or Art Prize voting site to purchase 2 bus wristbands for $5. This pass gives you unlimited bus rides for all 19 days of Art Prize and can be used on the Silver Line, DASH, and The Rapid. Also, be sure to download the updated Art Prize mobile app available for Apple and Android. The new version allows you to create lists of specific pieces you’d like to see and then share them with your friends and family. You can even map out your own routes! FRIDAY  4:00pm If you’re not already downtown, catch the Silver Line or DASH to Michigan Ave near DeVos Place and check out Art Prize’s West Side and North Monroe route along the Grand River. Enjoy beautiful river views from…
