The world’s largest annual art event, ArtPrize 2022, will grace more than 150 venues throughout Grand Rapids beginning September 15. With that, event planners throughout the city are gearing up to host more than 40 unique events to coincide with ArtPrize.

Over the course of the 18-day event, visitors will experience large-scale, interactive art installations across three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids and discover art inside and outside of a variety of public and private facilities. A city news release says event organizers are hoping to add to the synergy of more than half a million people visiting the City during ArtPrize and are producing a wide range of complementary cultural and performing art events.

From the annual Grand Rapids African American Art and Music Festival to Tour de Food Trucks to Confluence 2022. Officials say, there is something for everyone.

City Manager Mark Washington says: “While all eyes will be on the art during ArtPrize, Grand Rapids is proud to team with our many community partners to offer a myriad of events and activities that will give the community an opportunity to come together to celebrate and have fun.”
