Event description


These Guided Tours are for students grades 9-12.

Visit the Project 1 installations downtown with the guidance of an ArtPrize Learning & Engagement staff member!

Your experience will start at the ArtPrize HUB (41 Sheldon Blvd SE, Grand Rapids MI 49504). We will meet in our theater for a brief presentation about the Project 1 exhibition, theme, artists and artistic processes, and the site locations to be visited. Students will then be broken into three groups of 20. With your guide, groups will go on a walking tour of the Downtown site locations to visit artwork by Olalekan Jeyifous, Heather Hart, Amanda Browder, and Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Trained staff and volunteers will spur thoughtful conversation at each piece, encourage students to explore the work, and make thematic connections.

This experience will take approximately two hours.

These tours will correspond with the Educator Guides available online. It is not mandatory that you follow the Educator Guides, but they are available to enhance your experience.

Busses can drop off their students directly at the ArtPrize HUB (41 Sheldon Blvd SE, Grand Rapids MI 49504). Information regarding bus parking can be found here.
