Artistic contributions of African Americans will be highlighted during the second annual Grand Rapids African-American Art and Music Celebration, as part of ArtPrize 2016.
The two-day event kicks off Friday and runs through 10 p.m. Saturday at Calder Plaza. The goal is to immerse the community in art, music, dance and food reflecting the city’s diversity.
Kayleigh Kramer is a board member for the event. She says they’re working to build upon the success of last year’s inaugural celebration.
