GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- ArtPrize artists are looking for homes to stay in during this year's competition.
Organizers opened their registration for hosts Tuesday. This year's ArtPrize begins September 18, bringing artists from 45 states and 47 countries to Grand Rapids.
"Artists risk great amounts to travel to Grand Rapids and share their work with the ArtPrize audience. This is one way we can help offset their costs," said Amelea Pegman, community engagement director of ArtPrize. "Artist hosting is an amazing opportunity to showcase our legendary Midwest hospitality to out-of-town guests and to form profound, meaningful relationships with artists who come from all over."
Hosting can be as simple as offering artists a room to stay or a garage to store supplies. Registration will be open through the beginning of ArtPrize. For more information or to sign up, visit the ArtPrize website here.
