Event description

Description

The On/Off Bus Tours are for all grade levels 3-12. Capacity is one school bus per session.

A lively, informed guide will step on your bus to narrate the history of public art in Grand Rapids and each site location as well as introduce students to the Project 1 artists and artwork. This tour will travel to all three Project 1 site locations with the opportunity to step off the bus to view the artwork and site locations up close. Each tour is two hours in length and begins at Rosa Parks Circle.

These tours will be facilitated by the GR Running Tours company: Grand Rapids Running Tours has evolved from running - to walking, step-on bus tours and virtual tours. The common theme? A love for everything Grand Rapids…its history, culture, entertainment, vibe, tastes and exciting growth. All of this goodness needs to be shared; and that’s what founder and Chief Tour Ambassador, Caroline Cook envisioned in 2014. She’s a running enthusiast, a natural cheerleader, a history nut, and an idea person. As a downtown dweller, she blended her two favorite pastimes, exercise and education…and now narrates the fascinating tales of Grand Rapids lore to visitors, locals, conventioneers, clubs and organizations. With a menu of over 40 unique, thematically organized tours, Caroline has become a local “go to” for healthy, “burn while you learn” events for all ages and abilities. 2019 will be Caroline’s 5th year guiding ArtPrize tours.

Please select one ticket per bus group in the registration window. In the registration form, please indicate how many students will be on the bus.
