A sneak peek at ArtPrize kicked off Wednesday, Sept. 14. Preview week is a new idea this year that allows people to get the first look at some of the art.

More than 30 venues are participating, such as the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Organizers hope people who live in West Michigan will take advantage.

"Preview week, it's our first year doing this, it'll go until next Tuesday before the event officially opens and this is your chance to get a sneak peak at 30 different stations downtown before the crowds get here," says Katie Moore with ArtPrize.

Admission is free at some venues.

ArtPrize Eight officially starts Wednesday, Sept. 21.
