GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — ArtPrize 2021 is in full swing and downtown venues are bustling with visitors. See a sneak peek of what's in store at each of the major locations.

The B.O.B.

Over 50 art collections are on display at the B.O.B. for ArtPrize this year, spanning three floors of the historic building. 

Included at the B.O.B. is a painted portrait of Vincent van Gogh, created without using any paintbrushes. Named 'Squeezed Vincent van Gogh,' the piece was made only by squeezing paint onto the canvas. Artist Greg Constantine says he has been working with this technique for over 50 years.

The Amway Grand Plaza

At the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, 20 displays are set up for visitors to peruse. 

One of the galleries you can see at the venue is Rebecca Humes' "Dresses Made from Dictionaries." It features free-standing, wearable dresses and gowns made from vintage dictionaries. Pieces of the pages are used to create designs, full skirts and pleating.
