Marking 100 years of service to the Grand Rapids metropolitan community in 2009, Western Michigan University is deeply committed to the fine arts, which naturally led us to participate in ArtPrize.
An integral part of the Grand Rapids landscape, WMU’s downtown location is just south of VanAndel Arena. The renovated five-story historic building will feature the work of over 30 artists, some of whom are WMU faculty, students and alumni of the Frostic School of Art.
On Saturday, Sept. 27, stop in between 1 and 4 p.m. for a hot cup of McDonald’s coffee, watch some of the Broncos-Virginia Tech football game on the big screen, then head upstairs to view the work of more than 45 artists at our stunning 2014 ArtPrize installation.
The public is invited to join us for a reception on Saturday, Sept 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. Complimentary refreshments and light hors d'oeuvres will be provided.
