The Katie K team is excited to celebrate another year of ArtPrize and share one of the fabulous entries we’ve seen downtown in Grand Rapids, MI! ArtPrize Eight is well underway, and there’s still plenty of time to walk around the city and check out all of the different pieces and installations. Above, you can see just one section of the 288-inch wide painting ‘Four Play’ by artist Charles Yoder. The painting shows the transition of the four seasons in a woodland setting during four different times of day. This piece and more can be seen at the DeVos Convention Center in downtown Grand Rapids, and makes an excellent starting point for your tour of the city.

ArtPrize is an independently organized, international art competition decided by public vote and an expert jury. Open by design, the contest features 1,453 artist entries from 44 countries and 40 U.S. states all across the downtown area of Grand Rapids, Michigan. ArtPrize runs from September 21st through October 9th, 2016. You can read more about ArtPrize Eight by visiting ArtPrize.org

Below, you can hear Katie talk about how great ArtPrize is both for residents of Grand Rapids and for visitors who may be thinking to re-locate here. Check out the audio clip via the player below:
