ArtPrize schedule change to take place

Sophie Sears, Business Editor

Food vendors line the streets, music flows throughout the city, and thousands of people gather to wander amongst the art in downtown Grand Rapids. This unique city-wide “art show” gives exposure and provides opportunity for aspiring artists from all over the world. Not only do artists benefit, but it is a social hub for locals and a thriving business opportunity for the local businesses.

However, this annual event will now be held every other year, and not everyone is thrilled with this new schedule change.

“I am actually really upset that ArtPrize is now every other year,”  Grace Lee ‘19 said. “ I guess we all saw it coming though considering it’s become less of a big event, but I also feel like it wasn’t advertised enough as much it should have been.”

ArtPrize is often seen as a social event for many students, as they enjoy going downtown to take photos and enjoy their city.

“ArtPrize is always super fun, but as a photographer I really enjoy it for all the unique photo ops. The art is amazing, but it’s also fun to photograph our city when its full of people,”  Antonia Picard ‘19 said , “And it’s not like I am photographing people in the same location, I can walk around and constantly find a different shot.”

Regardless of the change, it is still a highly entertaining event and a great opportunity to explore the unique city of Grand Rapids. Be sure to check out the amazing art on September 19 through  October 7.
