What's new for ArtPrize Eight?

ArtPrize includes public projects as well as public art submissions

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - ArtPrize continues to evolve.

Wednesday morning, hours before ArtPrize Eight officially begins, Exhibitions Director Kevin Buist joined WZZM 13's Dan Harland to talk about some of the new additions and changes to this year's event.

Among the topics discussed were the new program called "Featured Public Projects" which ArtPrize organizers are using to assign works to highly visible spaces, including the Grand River and Calder Plaza.

ArtPrize "Pitch Nights" are now in their fourth year with the goal of attracting new artists and tourists alike to visit Grand Rapids during the festival.

ArtPrize has expanded the "Pitch Night" program each year by one city. This year, "Pitch Nights" were held in Louisville, Ky., Durham, N.C., Indianapolis and Minneapolis.
