Grand Rapids ArtPrize Trip: Saturday October 9th, 10:00 am

VCW INVITES YOU TO ITS FIRST EXHIBITION TRIP OF THE YEAR!


What: Grand Rapids ArtPrize
When: Saturday, October 9th, at 10:00 am
Where: meeting in front of Angell Hall on State Street

The Grand Rapids ArtPrize is a one-of-a-kind event and, in the words of  its organizers, a “radically open competition”  featuring over 1,700 pieces of art on display at more than 175 venues. Its artist-participants match online with locations throughout the city that are willing to host work including sculpture, film, installation, performance and 2-D media.  Then, from its opening on September 22 to its closing on October 10, visitors vote on their favorite artists.  With a $250,000 top prize, it is the world’s largest art prize decided solely by public vote.  See the official website for more information.

Please rsvp to vogchris@umich.edu. We plan to leave Grand Rapids by late afternoon or early evening.

Thanks and hope to see you there! (The sculpture above is a finalist from last year).
