Event description

Description

Come and enjoy an exhilarating tour experience! This tour is specifically designed to provoke some of the key principles that ArtPrize was founded on. This experience will promote an open discussion when viewing works of art that will seek to challenge definitions, encourage a deeper understanding of what makes ArtPrize, the artists, and Grand Rapids at large so unique while encouraging independent exploration during our time together and beyond. Starting at the ArtPrize HUB we will begin with an introduction to ArtPrize with intriguing facts about it’s history and what they mean to Grand Rapids and you as a voter. Then the fun will begin as we venture out into the city to see numerous works on our way to three of the most iconic areas in Grand Rapids: La Grande Vitesse “The Great Swiftness”, (1969) by artist Alexander Calder, Motu Viget “Strength Through Activity”, (1977) by artist Mark di Suvero, and finally Ecliptic, (2001) by artist Maya Lin. These three works encompass the passion, creativity, and, most importantly, curiosity that makes Grand Rapids the perfect city for housing such an extraordinary event as ArtPrize. We encourage you enjoy all of the works along the way and push yourself to explore and have fun amongst the hustle and bustle that is Grand Rapids. This welcoming and exclusive tour will be limited to twenty people per group which will give every person an opportunity to ask questions and learn useful skills when venturing around ArtPrize.


Any visitors 13 years or older are welcome to join and we encourage that any participant 18 years or younger is accompanied by an adult.
