ArtPrize is Fast Approaching

School has begun, fall is in the air and ArtPrize is coming soon! Only in its third year, this competition of various forms of art has drawn national and international attention to Grand Rapids.

Each year, more and more people visit downtown during this period, filling our restaurants, museums and streets and enjoying art displayed on bridges, lawns, sidewalks, and in many buildings.

Kay and I look forward to ArtPrize and go downtown several times during its duration. Many of our staff visit ArtPrize as a family activity or as a couples’ night out. We would enjoy supporting any of our patients whose work is displayed in ArtPrize. So, if you have an entry in ArtPrize this year, please let us know. We will make every effort to seek you out and support you. It’s fun for us to see another side of our patients and the remarkable talent they have. Good luck to all of our participants. This seems like something where everyone wins, artists, citizens and our great city.
