Getting around ArtPrize
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The 5th Annual ArtPrize is officially underway in Grand Rapids.
Hundreds of thousands are expected to check out the art over the next three weeks.
400,000 people from around the globe came to Grand Rapids for ArtPrize last year and this year ArtPrize organizers are hoping for half a million.
So, you can expect getting around downtown to get a little tricky.
"The best ArtPrize experience is when people come down with the mindset of being willing to yield themselves to it. Its crowded, thers lots of things to see, it can be a little bit overwhelming," said Todd Herring, Director of Communications for ArtPrize.
ArtPrize has partnered with the Dash and the Rapid Transits to transport people between venues.
There are maps and an ArtPrize app available to help you navigate the crowds.
Every year, ArtPrize distributes $560,000 in cash prizes. $360,000 is awarded by public vote and $200,000 is awarded by the jury.
