What makes this event so special? It is citywide, curated and judged by both the venues and the public and offers more than $500,000 in awards, including two $200,000 awards to winning artists. Yes, it’s a big prize.
This is an event that no art lover should miss, whether you are an artist, collector or simply like a good party. The city of Grand Rapids does an amazing job of hosting and the weather generally cooperates, making this a first class experience for all who attend.
For me, it’s particularly exciting to see so many artists from our area being represented this year, particularly my friend Leslie Adams who I have known since high school, and who’s fine work is being exhibited in the Gerald Ford Museum this year, so if I am biased, please forgive me. But I encourage anyone reading this article to be sure to visit and vote for Leslie.
